The Football Transfer Tavern has just erupted into laughter after seeing Jack Wilshere’s tweets about the photo of him smoking.
The England international retaliated to his critics on Twitter recently, posting a picture of footballing icon Zinedine Zidane taking a puff himself.
One punter yells:
“But Mummmmm, Zinedine Zidane does it!”
“You’re not the Messiah, Jack. You’re a very naughty boy!”
I must say, I try to remain impartial during shifts but even I can’t resist a smile when one of the regulars puts ‘Take a toke’ by C & C Music Factory on the jukebox.
Although, I do stop the punters ordering a Jack Wilshere cardboard cut-out for the smoking area, that is just too far – and also a healthy and safety issue!
Joking aside, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has said, during his press conference, that he will be having a word with the England international and you have to wonder what is in store for the 21-year-old? Maybe no dessert?
Or maybe he can no longer go out to play with his friends Aaron Ramsey and Kieran Gibbs? I know, his bedtime will be 9pm meaning no more Champions League midweek action for Jack!
