Hijinks At Stoke City As Pig’s Head Is Left In Locker; Provokes Footballer to Smash Up Car [PHOTO]

It’s never a boring day in the Premier League as a practical joke backfired horribly today at Stoke City.

US midfielder Brek Shea posted an image on social media of a bloody pig’s head that had been placed in the locker of Stoke striker Kenwyne Jones. The Trinidad and Tobago international didn’t see the funny side of the joke (he’s a Rastafarian and does not eat pork), and then – in retaliation – threw a brick through Glenn Whelan’s car window. Stoke City are now internally investigating the matter.

“The Club takes seriously reports of an incident at our Training Ground this afternoon,” said a statement from Stoke City. “A full internal investigation will be carried out and those responsible for any unacceptable behaviour will be dealt with in accordance with the Club’s disciplinary procedures.”

It must be the end of the season, ‘eh?

    If Jones could only get as animated on the pitch.

    Does hard work and scoring goals go against his Rastafarian beliefs as well?

      That’s in the fine print codex.

    Whilst I agree it’s particularly poor taste and a perfect example of the idiocy that occurs amongst players, the fans will lap it up.

    Expect plenty of inappropriate songs on Sunday.

    When I saw on sky sports that there had been a trying ground incident at Stoke, I assumed that someone had tried to pass the ball to a team mate enraging Pulis who wanted it hoofed 50 yards through the air towards Crouch’s head.

    Yeah, if this story is true it could turn out to be a lot more than a bit of “laddish hijinx” that could be just laughed off. It’s got pretty racist/”religionist” undertones.

    Shock horror…footballers act like morons…lol

    It’s not hijinx…to stuff a pigs head in a practicing Rastas locker is vindictive and shows their animosity between the two.

    Lucky it was just a brick through the car window.

    Money + -I.Q + too much time in full effect

      I agree. It’s a combination of a jock mentality, childish behavior and a very bad sense of humor.

      Cheers,
