Beware the Frank Arnesen

Beware the Frank Arnesen

It may be my febrile imagination, but there’s the faintest whiff of paedophilic hysteria about this latest Chelsea scandal. The director of football, Frank Arnesen, seems to have been handed the role of a latter-day tracksuited Childcatcher, stealing off with cherubic innocents from the Continent over.

We may yet see a baying rabble of News of the World readers gathered outside the gates of Stamford Bridge brandishing placards that demand “peadlophlies out”.

I suspect that a crack battalion of well-paid lawyers will whirr into action and wangle Chelsea out of this transfer ban after an appeal. But FIFA and UEFA deserve a rousing ovation for their entertainingly hardline stance on all this which has elicited a hilariously apoplectic reaction. We can only hope that they’ll treat us all to an encore up at Old Trafford.
