As is our usual policy when it comes to matters of extreme seriousness in football, we choose to plead the fifth amendment. For those not familiar with the United States constitution, it reads as follows:

‘No Kickette staffer should be forced to comment on a footballing situation that may or may not involve crime/infidelity/buffoon-like behaviour, on the basis that they are completely ill-equipped to deal with such matters and will invariably panic and say something that will get the site sued and/or look really stupid.

They shall instead maintain a dignified silence until everyone else has had their chance to act a fool. Only then are the ladies of Kickette obligated to provide factual information to their readers, so they can’t be accused of ignoring it.’

In light of recent events, it’s unlikely that the Chelsea man would have come out unscathed.

Luckily for him, a little known FIFA directive involving shirt embroidery was about to blow the sock-challenged one right out of the headlines.
