A Premier League Footballer has taken out a super injunction following the rumours he is happily married and has remained faithful to his wife of 12 years. For many involved in the sport this revelation could not have come at a worse time, with the reputation of the beautiful game already in tatters.
A spokesman has demanded a full enquiry into the matter stating, "This is clearly not the behaviour we expect of our footballers. They are role models to many and should be seen hanging out the back of strippers at Stringfellows, not taking their wife and kids for a walk in the park and Sunday lunch at the local Harvester."
Fans outside Old Trafford, the home ground of the club the star is rumoured to play for, express similar feelings.
Nigel, 38 from Gravesend commented, "I always thought he was one of the lads, someone who would shag a rolling doughnut if he could. I feel betrayed and cheated."
Jenny, 18, from Wythenshawe stated, " I only come and hang around the ground hoping for a quick knee trembler behind the bins with the players. The fact he would rather be at home with his wife or picking his kids up from school it's disgusting - it makes me sick."
Nobody from Manchester United was available for comment as the squad were away on one of Rio Ferdinand's team building exercises sessions working their way through the Pussycat Dolls
