Though Manchester City soccer player Kyle Walker has been urging everybody to stay home in order to slow the spread of coronavirus, he apparently forgot his own advice for one rowdy night.
According to a report from USA Today, citing British tabloid The Sun, Walker and a male friend invited two female sex workers to his apartment for a get-together on Tuesday night. It was a decision that, once it became public, prompted criticism from fans and an apology from the English star athlete.
“My actions in this matter are in direct contrast to what I should have been doing regarding the lockdown. And I want to reiterate the message: Stay home, stay safe,” Walker, 29, said.
Walker’s contrition may not be enough to keep him out of trouble, as Manchester City issued a statement saying it would initiate an internal disciplinary procedure against the player and praising the UK’s National Health Service.
“Footballers are global role models, and our staff and players have been working to support the incredible efforts of the NHS and other key workers in fighting the effects of the COVID-19 Coronavirus, in any way we can. Kyle’s actions in this matter have directly contravened these efforts,” the club said.
“We are disappointed to hear the allegations, note Kyle’s swift statement and apology, and will be conducting an internal disciplinary procedure in the coming days.”
