Ivan Toney’s Girlfriend and Mother: His Personal Life
Ivan Toney is an English professional football player who plays as a striker for the Premier League club Brentford. The 26-year-old began his professional career in his local club, Northampton FC, where he made his first team debut in 2012.
He then joined Newcastle in 2015 but spent most of his time there on loan spells. He joined Peterborough United in 2018 on a permanent move before joining then Championship side Brentford during the 2020/2021 season. His record 31 goals helped the club earn promotion to the Premier League.
Toney has been charged with over 200 breaches of betting rules by the FA. He has been cooperating with the investigations and has until 24th November to respond to the charges.
Ivan Toney’s mother skipped meals so he could eat
The Brentford striker was raised by his mother, Lisa. His father was absent from his life ever since he was a child. He described his mother as a shining light throughout his life. He had this to say about her in an interview:
“My mum has played a massive part in my life. From when I was very young, she’d always worry when I was out playing with my friends and wanted to make sure I got home safe. There were times when she even skipped meals to make sure I was eating.
“I only found this out a few months back when she mentioned it casually during a family discussion. Hearing that makes you realise you don’t always understand what your parents do for you until you look back and think about it.”
Toney stated that those sacrifices his mother made gave him more drive to get promoted to the Premier League to repay what his mother did for him. It’s safe to say that the motivation paid off, as he is now in his second season in the Premier League.
