Brave play­ers must be given jus­tice

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

WHAT a sick­en­ing world we live in when peo­ple tasked with help­ing young kids achieve their dreams in foot­ball take ad­van­tage and abuse young boys.

My heart goes out to ev­ery­one af­fected by this shock­ing scan­dal and I re­ally fear that the worst of what hap­pened is yet to come out.

The vic­tims who have stepped for­ward, es­pe­cially those that have waived their right to anonymity, are so brave. I can’t imag­ine what they must be go­ing through.

If you ask me, there is so much more to this story than we know and I think Andy Wood­ward was right when he said that the scale of the abuse could be big­ger than the Jimmy Sav­ile scan­dal.

I wouldn’t be shocked if it turned out that there are thousands of men out there who have fallen vic­tim to sick pae­dophiles like Barry Ben­nell within the world of foot­ball.

I re­ally hope that the truth comes out and those re­spon­si­ble are brought to jus­tice. WHEN are th­ese celebri­ties go­ing to re­alise that flash­ing their fan­nies on the red car­pet is not a good look!

Last week it was John Leg­end’s wife Chrissy Teigen who showed off far too much when she de­cided to leave her knick­ers at home for the Amer­i­can Mu­sic Awards. How em­bar­rass­ing for her poor hus­band!

There’s no need to show so much flesh – es­pe­cially if you’re not even get­ting paid for it!

Next time, Chrissy, in­vest in some of those stick-on knick­ers – and keep your dig­nity!
