Some hooligans, yet unknown, mocked the monument to legendary Everton player Dixie Dean that is located near the Liverpool Stadium by vandalizing it.
Everton wrote in theirregarding this situation:
“Everton is assisting Merseyside Police with questions regarding a flare ignited outside of Goodison Park on the Dixie Dean statue.
“We ask those with information about this upsetting and disrespectful event to notify Police at Merseyside.”
Video from the cameras that recorded the moment was handed over to the police so that the perpetrators could be found.
After Everton’s defeat by Tottenham in the 33rd round of English Premier League, vandals set fire to the statue using a flare. But Everton reassured their fans:
“Upon review-and clean-up of the monument and the ground-we can happily announce that there has been no permanent harm to the statue of our greatest goal scorer ever-or the floral tributes placed at the foot of the statue.”
