Ipswich fine Pele £3,000


19th, July 2007


TT.JPGIpswich prankster Gavin Williams has landed himself with a £3,000 bill after he trashed a team-mate’s car. The Welsh midfielder spray-painted Ian Miller’s Audi TT. The club has ordered Williams to pay for the damage to Miller’s car. And as if he wasn’t in enough trouble, Williams signed his name as Pele on a first-team shirt that was to be given away to charity.
The shirt was being signed at a barbecue at the home of Tractor Boys director Phil Hope-Cobbold. Cheeky chappy Williams decided to become the Brazil legend in the name of charity, while team-mate Gary Roberts miraculously became Bobby Moore. Ipswich are reportedly fuming at the incidents and are hoping to offload Williams, who turns 27 tomorrow, to Birmingham or Stoke in a £500,000 deal. [Via The Sun]

    Why are Welsh footballers such knob-ends? Bellamy, Savage and now this guy… Maybe they’ve got a deep lying inferiority complex about not being handy enough to play rugby
