Victor Anichebe is “deeply upset and very angry”
Everton star not willing to forgive police for jewellery shop mix-up
A statement on the Everton club website, Thursday March 12:
“We would now expect [Victor Anichebe] to receive a full and unreserved apology from the police – and then both he and the club would then consider the matter closed.”
“Whilst I do fully understand Cheshire Police’s desire to tackle the problem of robberies on jewellery shops in the Knutsford area, I remain deeply upset and very angry about the treatment which was meted out to myself and a friend yesterday (Wednesday).”
We can’t figure out what is more shocking – Anichebe’s reticence to forgive the police despite receiving the apology he desired, or the fact that a footballer used the word “meted” in a statement. Did you swallow a dictionary, Victor?
