- The Twitter response from Port Vale striker Tom Pope seemed antisemitic in nature
- Pope had made headlines hours earlier for a great performance against Man City
- He later removed the tweet, but the FA could be set to start an investigation
Tom Pope can be in hot water about his latest social media post at the Football Association to look for answers at the Port Vale striker.
A few hours after making headlines for a striking display in Vale’s 4-1 FA Cup defeat in Manchester City, experienced veteran Twitter took Twitter to answer a fan’s question.
“We are invading Iran, then Cuba, then North Korea, then the Rothchilds are crowned champions of every bank on the planet,” he said in response to a Twitter user who asked him to “show the outcome of World War II.” to predict’.

Pope later removed the tweet and the FA investigates the issue and can initiate an investigation depending on the outcome of conversations with both the player and his club.
Pope had previously created a storm on social media after his goal in Saturday’s third round at Etihad Stadium supported his pre-match bravado in a personal fight with City’s John Stones.
Last summer, Pope, 34, mocked Stones in a tweet, claiming that he would score 40 goals per season if he faced the England defender every week.

All eyes were on their duel, and although Stones was largely good with him and had the last laugh while City had the upper hand, Pope certainly had his moment.
Pope canceled Oleksandr Zinchenko’s opener with a nice header – his 109th goal for the club that set a post-war record – and later intercepted a Stones pass to create another chance.
Pope said: ‘It was only teasing and people dug it up because we signed Man City. It is suddenly everywhere and people have had my case about it.

“He is a center half of world class. I just said he wasn’t very physical and that’s it. If people think I’m wrong, I don’t care.
‘I spoke with (Benjamin) Mendy and he said that all of their players had hit him over it for weeks and that they found him so annoying and then I clearly scored and he was probably destroyed.
“But I only hoped that I would get half a chance to get rid of one. The last thing you want to do is be beat 7-0 after everything that has gone on Twitter, don’t score and everyone laughs.
But now pope may have landed in hot water by “predicting the outcome of the Second World War”
“It was nice to close a few people to back up what I said, but it’s water from a duck’s back. I didn’t have much trouble with it anyway. “
City invited the Vale players to the locker room after the game and Pope admits that his meeting with Stones did not go well.
“They all dragged me, the players from Man City, but John didn’t want to talk to me,” Pope said. “It was a bit tricky. I shook his hand, but he wasn’t too happy. “
Pope felt sure that he had no reason to go back and tweet later: “I just want to say that I was completely wrong and was afraid to say that I would score a 40 season … it looks more like 50 . “
