PICS OF THE DAY! WESTBROM DEFENDER PICTURED CLEANING HIS BUTTOCK WITH £20s BILL
This is embarrassing! No doubt.
West Bromwich defender Liam Ridgewell. has been remorseful after the embarrassing picture emerged of him wiping his backside with a wad of £20s.
With toilet roll pouring down from cupboards and a £20 note stuck to the wall, it could only be one player's locker which has been trashed and photographed for posterity on Twitter
But it would seem his team-mates have seized upon this as a perfect opportunity to wind-up one of their fellow players.
The former Aston Villa and Birmingham defender was forced to apologise after the picture was leaked at the weekend.
He claimed the shot was taken to wind up a friend after he won a bet and he never intended for it to enter the public domain.
Ridgewell told The Sun: 'The photo was taken in the privacy of my home around eight months ago as a joke to wind up a mate, who I had just won a personal bet with.
'I only intended him to see the photo but now it’s public, I can understand how it will be viewed. I am sorry for any offence it causes.'
The picture caused anger as Ridgwell earns in a week what the denizens of the West Midlands earn - on average - in a year.
The club distanced themselves from the issue saying it was a private matter.
