Crystal Palace goalie Wayne Hennessey is denying he made a Nazi salute in a photo taken at a dinner alongside teammates as they celebrated victory after an FA Cup tie over the weekend.

The picture was taken by Hennessey’s German teammate, Max Meyer, as he shared it on his Instagram stories over the weekend. 

Check it out below: 

Hennessey took to Twitter to defend himself:  

“I waved and shouted at the person taking the picture to get on with it and at the same time put my hand over my mouth to make the sound carry. “I can assure everyone I would never ever do that and any resemblance to that kind of gesture is absolutely coincidental,” he added.

Let’s take a closer look. 

Sorry, not buying it. 

The wave is one thing, but the other hand over his mouth is the dead giveaway.
