Paul Merson. The name conjures up many memories. For some, it’s the troubled footballer who suffers from addictions of drugs, gambling and alcohol. For others, it’s the former England international footballer Paul Merson, who played 327 matches for Arsenal.
If you’re wondering what the legend has been up to lately, he’s been doing the dinner circuit in the United Kingdom which consists of speaking engagements at sports and men’s clubs.
Embarrassingly, Merson will be speaking this Wednesday night at a strip club in Northampton as part of the activities for the Champions League Final which will be televised live at the establishment.
Doors open on Wednesday at 6pm, Merson will start his talk at 7pm and the match kicks off at 7.45pm with, according to the Northampton Chronicle & Echo Newspaper, “tasteful pole dances during the event.”
Tickets for entry to the Urban Tiger strip club are £10 each which includes a free curry and rice.
Do you feel sorry for Merson having to attend strip clubs to make money, or is there nothing wrong with it? Click the comments link below to share your opinion.
