Apparently, ham was on Stoke City’s lunch menu.
The club is launching an internal investigation after a bloody pig’s head was found in the locker of striker Kenwyne Jones. Winger Brek Shea Instagrammed a photo of the pig’s head with the caption “Locker room banter gone wild!”
Jones, who is a Rastafarian and does not eat pork, was less than pleased. He reportedly threw a brick through teammate Glenn Whelan’s car window, who was thought to be behind the prank gone wrong.
When it comes to pranking teammates, the Potters go all in. Less than a week before the pig incident, the soon to be retired Michael Owen received a retirement gift from his teammates in the form of his Mercedes being covered in eggs and flour.
Stoke later released a statement:
“The club takes seriously the reports of an incident at our training ground this afternoon. A full internal investigation will be carried out and those responsible for any unacceptable behavior will be dealt with in accordance with the club’s disciplinary procedures.”
Jones’ girlfriend, Kissa Abdullah, expressed her displeasure on Twitter, condemning the perpetrators and stating the prank was “not even close to funny.”
