Ex Wigan defender needed a loan

Ex Wigan defender needed a loan

Tottenham Hotspur and former Wigan Athletic defender Pascal Chimbonda is in the spotlight after being questioned by the police investigating corruption in football.

Chimbonda`s agent, Willie McKay, is reported in many of this morning newspapers giving his side of the story to an £18,000 loan that he made to the French right back

McKay says that following Chimbonda`s move from the Latics to Spurs that the player found himself a little short of money and asked his agent, McKay, for a loan of £18,000.

When I'm a little short I borrow a tenner

Willie McKay says he used a cheque to lend Chimbonda the money and everything is above board and I have no doubts that it is

The thing that does bother me though is that Chimbonda was a very well paid player at Latics and that he needed to borrow £18K, this leaves the question, what on earth do these players spend their money on?

18 grand to me would be a very large wedge of money, but the way McKay talks about it is so matter of fact and shows that football players truly do live in a different world!

We know they get paid too much, but are the current crop of Premiership players worth their crust?

Different world, 18k would be more than a years wage to a lot of supporters, the top players get paid far too much, but it isnt their fault, if someone offered me stupid money for doing my job Id take it

the actual quote is "the love of money" which is the problem usually, i.e GREED
