Hennessey found 'not proven' to have made Nazi salute The FA said a breach of disciplinary rules had been "found not proven" after looking into an alleged Nazi salute made by Wayne Hennessey.

Crystal Palace goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey was deemed to have a "lamentable" degree of ignorance about Adolf Hitler and fascism by the panel that cleared him of a Football Association (FA) charge for an alleged Nazi salute.

Wales international Hennessey was charged by the FA after a photograph showing him with his right arm raised and left placed over his mouth was posted to Instagram by his team-mate Max Meyer in January.

Hennessey denied knowingly giving the Nazi salute and a hearing earlier in the month found the charges against the goalkeeper were not proven.

Hennessey cleared of improper conduct charge by FA

Hennessey cleared of improper conduct charge by FA Crystal Palace goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey has been cleared of any wrongdoing for an alleged anti-semitic gesture posted to Instagram in January. The Wales international shot-stopper was pictured with his right arm in the air and his left hand across his mouth, in an image posted to Palace teammate Max Meyer’s Instagram page following the club’s FA Cup win over Grimsby in January. The 32-year old had been accused of imitating a nazi salute in the picture, which featured many of the Crystal Palace squad at a team meal.

Hitler , the figurehead of the Nazi regime that led Germany to World War II, and instigated one of the most infamous genocides in history, the Holocaust. The impact Adolf Hitler had on history, namely, the rise of Nazism and the Holocaust is also due to a favourable set of circumstances that without them

The written reasons released on Tuesday explained why Hennessey did not receive any punishment following the incident.

"Mr Hennessey categorically denied that he was giving a Nazi salute. Indeed, from the outset he said that he did not even know what one was," the release read.

"Improbable as that may seem to those of us of an older generation, we do not reject that assertion as untrue.

"In fact, when cross-examined about this, Mr Hennessey displayed a very considerable – one might even say lamentable – degree of ignorance about anything to do with Hitler, fascism and the Nazi regime.

"Regrettable though it may be that anyone should be unaware of so important a part of our own and world history, we do not feel we should therefore find he was not telling the truth about this.

"All we would say (at the risk of sounding patronising) is that Mr Hennessey would be well advised to familiarise himself with events which continue to have great significance to those who live in a free country."

The written reasons also noted Meyer, capped four times by Germany, would "hardly be likely" to have posted the photograph to Instagram had he felt Hennessey was giving a Nazi salute.

Meyer was among those who gave evidence, along with Hennessey's manager Roy Hodgson and Palace players Connor Wickham, James McArthur, Julian Speroni, Martin Kelly and Wilfried Zaha.

Hennessey wants to learn 'as much as he can' more about Nazism.
Crystal Palace goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey is desperate to be educated on the subject of Nazism, according to manager Roy Hodgson. The Wales international shot-stopper escaped punishment for an alleged ‘Nazi salute’ in an Instagram post recently. Hennessey had been charged by the FA after a post from teammate Max Meyer showed him with his right arm raised and his left arm placed across his mouth. However, the FA found that the charge wasn’t proven earlier this month and dropped the case, with the written reason claiming that Hennessey had “a very considerable – one might even say lamentable – degree of ignorance about anything to do with Hitler, facsimile and the Nazi r
