The Football Transfer Tavern is full of hearsay and I don’t mean that awful band from ‘Popstars’.
I’m talking about: “My best mate’s, friend, who works at a petrol garage with Lionel Messi’s uncle’s best friend that said that Barcelona have agreed a deal with Tranmere Rovers for him.”
We had a punter come in earlier and, in rather dramatic style, said: “You won’t believe who has just served me down at Sainsbury’s! None other than Ledley King.”
Obviously we laughed it off, as if the former Tottenham Hotspur defender, who no doubt earned more in a week, than a Sainsbury’s employee does in a year, would be seeking employment in retail.
However, it now appears I owe this punter an apology. On my lunch break, I popped down to Sainsbury’s to grab some lunch and, you’ve guessed it, I bumped into the former England international myself.
Now obviously Ledley isn’t working for Sainsbury’s but good on the former Spurs man for doing his bit, as we always moan that footballers are too segregated from society.
Anyway, I’m passing the picture around the tavern, go and find it and take a look for yourself.
