Wood filler is an abrasive substance used to coat footballs to protect them from moisture.
It is also used to fill in cracks in the wood.
The Football Association (FA) is aware of a complaint from a player in the UK, who has been accused of using the substance on the pitch.
The player is in his mid-twenties and was playing for the Brentford Academy, according to the Football Association’s website.
He told the website that the player’s mother had previously told him to “just stop”.
It has been alleged that the substance has been used to prevent a crack forming.
The FA said it was aware of the complaint, and had taken the matter “very seriously”.
In January, the FA said that it had received complaints from “a number of footballers”. “
We are working closely with the player and his mother and will be contacting them to provide more details as the situation develops.”
