The Pikey Scum manager’s transfer window preparations were left in tatters last night after he was arrested.
Police collared the Scum boss on the grounds that the stolen iPhone incident he was apparently the victim of on Tuesday was allegedly an elaborate insurance fraud.
Details have emerged that the chief suspect in the case was known to the Scum manager beforehand and was actually his defender Patrice Evra.
“I’m telling you, the guy was a honky!” pleaded the Scum gaffer as stoney-faced policemen placed him in handcuffs at the club’s home stadium Trailer Park.
Evra was brought in for questioning, but he just shrugged a lot while chainsmoking Gauloises. Both men were bailed in the early hours.
Police initially followed up leads that a third man was involved and arrested the Spartak Mogadishu manager.
He was later released due to lack of evidence.
“This be gettin’ ridiculous,” said the Spartak manager this morning outside the club’s Spyglass Hill training facility. “If ye tryin’ to throw me in the brig, ye should try doin’ it for summint I actually done, like those French tourists I got locked in me….um….shivver me timbers, be that the time? I must be away to get shipshape for ye transfer porthole.”
