Kenny Dalglish has been accused of hacking into Ryan Babel’s Twitter account and leaving abusive ‘tweets’ with the intention of getting the player into more hot water with the FA and, ideally, a three-match ban.
The indecipherable Scot was said to be furious that his shot-ballooning winger only received a paltry fine from the FA following his recent mocked-up photo of Howard Webb in a Manchester United shirt. The £10,000 sum was duly paid by Babel after a routine search down the back of his sofa for small change.
Dalglish was hoping for at least a one game suspension for their crucial relegation six-pointer away at Wolves this weekend. The uncharacteristic leniency shown by the FA now means he will be reluctantly forced to include the useless waste-of-space in his eighteen man squad.
Babel woke this morning to find two tweets on his homepage. The first castigated United fans for all being ‘southern gay-boys’ who regularly eat ‘plastic prawn sandwiches’. Whilst the other simply stated that ‘Bobby Charlton is a c***’.
Already he has come in for a welter of criticism from irate supporters on the popular networking site who are understandably shocked at such outbursts from a Premiership footballer. One reply, from a tweeter who calls himself ‘Fergie’s love-child’ has publicly called for the Dutchman to be sacked by his Merseyside employers; a suggestion that must delight crafty ‘King’ Kenny.
Although there is no concrete evidence linking him to the hacked messages Babel confided his suspicions that his gaffer is behind them to a close friend. He is reported to have passed the infamous Anfield boot-room late last night and peered inside to see Dalglish with a couple of his coaching staff giggling like schoolchildren whilst tapping away on a lap-top. The Scot allegedly remarked ‘This will get the useless twunt out ‘til Easter at least!’.
The Cutter rang the manager’s office this morning for a comment but appeared to have got through to a man chewing on toffee for all the sense we could make.
