Liverpool star Flanagan faces prison sentence for assault
Liverpool star Jon Flanagan has pleaded guilty to assaulting his girlfriend Rachael Wall.
The 25-year-old defender appeared at Liverpool Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday accused of kicking Rachael Wall.
According to BBC Sports, Flanagan was charged following an incident in Duke Street, in Liverpool city centre, on December, 22. He will be sentenced later this month.
Liverpool-born Flanagan has made more than 50 first-team appearances for the club since making his debut aged 18. The court heard he had been seen on CCTV assaulting his partner, who he has been in a relationship with for 18 months.
Lionel Greig, mitigating, said the victim had not provided a statement and there had been no previous instances of domestic violence in their relationship.
Both parties were under the influence of alcohol at the time, he added. District Judge Wendy Lloyd said she had been given a breakdown of the CCTV, which showed Flanagan assaulting his partner on “several occasions” and kicking her at one point.
The case was adjourned to 17 January when Flanagan will be sentenced.
Flanagan was a standby for England’s 2014 World Cup squad, but has only played once for Liverpool this season and spent last season on loan at Burnley after a 20-month injury lay off.
