Manchester United’s young centre-half Chris Smalling has issued an apology for the costume he wore at a fancy dress party in his own home. The picture appeared on the front cover of the Sun this morning, but its nice to see this public apology come out so quickly.
What Smalling does in his own home should remain private, and now he needs to figure out which ‘friend’ sold the photo to the press. Hopefully it can be forgotten about and everyone can move on quite quickly as it looks like a genuine mistake from the 24-year old.
The statement read:
“Chris and his girlfriend hosted a fancy dress party to celebrate Christmas and their belated birthdays with close friends in the assumed privacy of his own home.
“He dressed in a costume consisting of empty bottles of Jagermeister and cans of Red Bull strapped to his chest in an attempted comedy play on the popular ‘Jagerbomb drink’.
“Although he fully accepts in hindsight it was an ill-thought out and insensitive decision, absolutely no harm was intended whatsoever and he apologises for any offence caused.”
