3 Sunderland players (keeper Ben Alnwick, midfielder Liam Lawrence and striker Chris Brown) are alleged to have been caught on tape having sex with an unknown woman.
Details are scarce and it is not clear if this was consensual, forced or just a groupie romp in th park. It’s also not known who the visionary cameraman was, although former Sunderlan midfielder Martin Woods (20, now with Rotherdam) is also reported to have been present at the flat when the filming took place.
Sunderland director Lesley Callaghan:
“The behaviour of any individual that adversely affects the image or good name of Sunderland Football Club is obviously disappointing. We will be handling this matter internally.”
I have two questions:
1) Who’s the mystery woman?
2) Why is this an issue? Sunderland’s image is damaged by the leak, not by the act itself, correct? So technically they’re going after the person whose idea of fun was to leak the tape / make the allegations?
Sunderland are 13th in the Championship on 30 points, 10 points behind table-toppers Birmingham and 5 points behind Burnley from the last play-off spot.
