West Bromwich Albion striker Saido Berahino is within his rights to sue to teammate James Morrison, according to a top lawyer.

Berahino was said to have been struck by Morrison in the aftermath of Saturday’s breathless 3-3 draw with Cardiff City.

The pair allegedly clashed in the dressing-room after Morrison became enraged by Berahino’s refusal to apologise to his teammates after losing the ball the build-up to Cardiff’s stoppage-time equaliser.

Reports emerged on Wednesday that the England Under-21 international was weighing up the possibility of legal action against Scottish midfielder Morrison.

Now Ashley Wooton, now a sports specialist lawyer for Thomas Eggar LLP, believes Berahino may have a case.

He said: “James Morrison could potentially be disciplined by the club for misconduct if he admits or is found to have hit Berahino. Berahino could raise a grievance against Morrison for his unreasonable and dangerous behaviour.

“Depending on the severity of the injury, Berahino may have a claim for personal injury against both Morrison and the club.
