He's admitting the charge of grooming an underage girl - he surely is finished in the game.
No way back for him. Admitting grooming as well though. Sex with an underage girl could potentially have been an honest mistake in a club etc, ala Graham Rix. The club must have known what he was thinking of doing. Assume his contract will be cancelled as well and kicked out with no way back.
Expect a sacking from Sunderland.
Missus standing by him I see......
scumbag boll^%x and will deserve everything coming.
how the hell have Sunderland being allowing him to play?
Can only think that he told them he was pleading not guilty all along. No other way surely!
that'll come out in the wash I imagine, but if it turns out he was pleading guilty all along then Sunderland will and should be in the do-do too
That will never come out. What a dirty horrible man.
The Bohemians transfer rumour mill will go into overdrive.
he's admitted guilt!
Anyway, the details are a bit more sordid in my opinion.
He's admitted kissing the girl (and grooming her), but still has to stand trial on two other counts, which I assume will be more overtly sexual acts.
He has said he did it, having already said he didn't previously. If he had admitted to these charges at his first hearing he would already punished (and likely jailed) awaiting trial on the second two charges!
How can the girlfriend be standing by him. I mean, he cheated on her (if they were going out at the time), as mentioned above he didn't just get a bit drunk in a niteclub and head off with a 15 year old thinking she was 19 or whatever, he actually groomed her.
What sort of person stands by someone who does that?
Have a bit of respect for yourself. One can only summise that 50k a week pays for a lot of loyalty
