It's all over the football media in Holland, and Feyenoord (the club he was at before) knew about it too but they hoped it would never come to bite him the ass. Thing is the girl agreed to having sex, it's not like he raped her. However, it's still illegal I think and if they can prove it messed up her life somewhat, he might be screwed.
Is that what they have said, that she agreed? No 13 year old should be agreeing to that, but even if no adult should ever, ever, ever put them into the situation to be agreeing to anything. Shocking.
Wonder if people knew about it that it had something to do with the lad not signing for Everton? Seemed strange they said he was crocked, and then has played a few games since in Holland and is training with international squad (especially with our history of signing players with injury issues before), it seemed a done deal until those injury issues came about. We all thought the Powers that Be just got a bit tight with taking a chance with the money, but I wonder... A stigma like this can really stick to a person, the press over here would have destroyed him, and not the publicity any club needs.
