Everton deny Diouf banana claims

Everton insist there is no police investigation into allegations by El-Hadji Diouf that bananas were thrown at him at Goodison Park on Sunday.

• Paper round: Alleged Diouf abuse 'not racist'

The Blackburn player is being investigated by the Merseyside force for alleged racial abuse of a 14-year-old ball boy.

Diouf told police after the final whistle that bananas were thrown at him from the Everton crowd. Officers immediately scoured the area next to the pitch and in the stands but no bananas were found. No pictures have surfaced to back up his claim either.

An Everton spokesman said: ''Our only concern is a child protection matter involving a 14-year-old boy. We have spoken to the police and have been told that is the only investigation they are concerned with and that they are not investigating the behaviour of any Everton supporter.''

It is understood that Diouf told Blackburn staff after the match that he had had fruit or a piece of fruit thrown at him by Everton fans.

Diouf, a Senegal international who formerly played for Liverpool, also denied he had racially abused the ball boy.
