We need to remember that ‘suspicion’ is not ‘guilty’.

‘his club issued a statement’? Which club?


Does anyone remember Graham Rix?

He was a very good player at arsenal partnered on the left side with the great Liam Brady. Rix later went on to coach at Chelsea but was jailed for having sex with a 15 year old girl whom he was convinced was of legal age. Oddly enough, Rix was given a second chance to coach and manage. Adam Johnson was not so lucky and served 5 years or so for child grooming.
