English football has stopped, but Kyle Walker is still active. A little too much… After Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish, who breached confinement measures to visit a friend, after the offensive midfielder of Schalke Amine Harit, left his house to go to a shisha bar, the Manchester City defender was in turn pinned for not respecting the rules of social distancing.
And his motive is even less glorious: last week, the English international has indeed invited two call girls to spend an evening with him. Only a few hours before publishing a video facing the camera in which he asked all his fellow citizens to be careful and isolate themselves…
The sex scandal was revealed across the Channel by the Sun, a tabloid specialist in the matter, with a testimony from one of the two young women in support, and especially photos of Walker taken by the latter. Which led the rear to a public mea culpa.
“I want to apologize for the choices I made last week,” said the 29-year-old. “I understand that being a professional footballer carries the responsibility of being a role model. As such, I want to apologize to family, friends, club, supporters and the public for abandoning them. “
Walker, however, should not get away with it, since according to several media, including the Guardian, Manchester City is very upset by this case, and determined to punish its employee. “Footballers are models,” deplores a spokesperson for the club in the daily columns. Our staff and our players have worked to support the incredible efforts of the NHS (the public health service, editor’s note) and other workers- key in the fight against Covid-19, in every way possible. Kyle’s actions in this matter directly contravened these efforts. We are disappointed to hear these allegations, we note Kyle’s swift statement and apologies, and we are now going to conduct internal disciplinary proceedings. “
