VIDEO: Watford player SUSPENDED by the club after getting into brawl at Royal Ascot

Watford youngster Reece Miller has been suspended by his club after footage emerged showing him getting into a 10-man brawl at Royal Ascot.

The 18-year-old, who is described on Watford’s website as a ‘strong and powerful centre-forward’, is now confirmed he is set to be the subject of a disciplinary investigation.

Last year, the former Reading under 16s player won the Premier League’s Under-23 Goal of the Season. Speaking after being awarded the Under-23 Goal of the Season in 2018, he said: “I’ve started to get into the Under-23s team and I’ve come off the bench a few times, so obviously, my next target is to break through into that team permanently. Then I’ve got to try and get a pro deal for next year – as soon as possible really. I’m quite old fashioned. I like to hold it up and then get in the box and try and score as many goals as I can.”

Unlucky lad, screwed that one right up!

Watch the video of the moment below, Miller is said to be in the pinstriped shirt.

“We are treating this matter with the utmost seriousness” a Watford spokesperson said. “The club will not tolerate any behaviour which tarnishes its image and a full disciplinary investigation is now in process.

“As soon as the footage was brought to the club’s attention, an immediate decision was taken to suspend the player.

“He will now face an inquiry with all disciplinary options available to the club. There will be no further comment until the investigation is completed.”

He was also caught on camera posing with The Sun’s coverage of the fight which took place near the Queen who was watching her horses.

Miller’s friend said: “I thought the fact they were posing about it after was pretty disgusting.

“There were women in the video and Ascot is a family event and I saw one was KO’d.

“I thought it was disgusting and embarrassing.

“I just thought, ‘imagine if that was my Mum or sister’ and they were all trying to show who was the bigger man. It was a bit embarrassing really. It’s not the first time there’s been violence like this at Ascot.”

 

After checking out the video, fans took to give their views on it, many mocking it with one stating that the footballer needed locking up – find out what more they had to say on the next page.
