Franck Ribery & Karim Benzema: See You In Court!
What nicely manicured, green shrubbery Clairefontaine, France has. Image taken: 13.08.2012.
Today’s soapbox speech is brought to you by the number four.
1. A bit of BG: originally the France international colleagues had only been formally accused. But as of yesterday, the duo was formally charged with soliciting a minor for sex. Franck has already admitted to having sex with the prosti, while Karim vaguely responded to Miss Dehar’s story by saying he was “not affected” by it or her claims. Not confirmed – yet – but will surely come out sooner or later is whether either player knew that Zahia was 16-years-old at the time of their respective romps.
2. But really, what we want to know is what Mrs Ribery has had to say about all this (behind closed doors since she ain’t saying it publicly)? Not sure about you, Kickettes, but if we had two kids by a man who’s often considered to be one of world football’s ugliest players, we’d be full steam ahead on engaging divorce lawyers in a bidding war.
3. Also annoying: you’re going to be a ‘player’, for God’s sake at least play legally and don’t get busted.
4. Ugh, Karim. We know. You’re a 24-year-old gazillionaire and on top of the world and we shouldn’t place burdensome expectations on you. But still. Your once illustrious shine is beginning to wear a tad thin on our mantle.
Or perhaps we’ve said too much.
