Premier League outfit Brentford have been forced to open an investigation into the matter, after footage surfaced online which appears to showcase star striker Ivan Toney taking aim at the club in explicit fashion.
The video in question first surfaced on social media early on Friday, and has since gone altogether viral.
This comes with Toney, enjoying some well-earned rest away from west London as part of the Premier League’s winter break, having appeared to clearly state ‘F**k Brentford’.
Footage of the incident can be seen below:

Those in a position of power at the Brentford Community Stadium, in turn, have since unsurprisingly caught wind of the actions of their goalscoring talisman.
And, as per Jay Harris of The Athletic, this has culminated in an official investigation being opened, albeit with the Bees not willing to provide further comment on the situation at this point in time:
Brentford are aware of a video that is being circulated on social media allegedly involving Ivan Toney and are investigating the matter.
The club will offer no further comment at this stage.#BrentfordFC

Turning attentions towards more positive matters at Brentford, the capital outfit are expected to announce the addition of Christian Eriksen over the course of the next 48 hours.
In a move first speculated several weeks ago, Thomas Frank’s stuttering squad is set to be boosted by both the experience and creative nous boasted by the Danish international.
Eriksen is of course available as a free agent at present, after being released by Inter Milan owing to rules surrounding the use of implantable cardioverter-defibrillators in Italy.
The gifted midfielder was fitted with as much on the back of his frightening cardiac arrest at last summer’s European Championships.
Brentford expect to unveil Christian Eriksen as a new signing in the next 48 hours.
The Denmark international, who suffered a cardiac arrest during last summer’s European Championship, has been undergoing final medical checks this week.
