Sunderland winger Adam Johnson has been arrested on suspicion of having sex with a 15 year old girl, according to reports circling around Britain today.
He was questioned at his £1.85 million house by police earlier this morning.
The 27 year old ex-England international has been suspended by his club pending further inquiries and will surely not be selected by Roy Hodgson for England’s upcoming Euro 2016 qualifying game against Lithuania.
These allegations add more shame to and shed more dim views onto the world of football, following the recent scandals, involving ex Sheffield United player, Ched Evans.
Some fans, young and old, went onto Twitter and Facebook to protest against the fact that Johnson’s name has already been outed to the public, with some disappointed by their star player and other’s taking the “innocent until proven guilty” approach.
One things for sure though ..
If he is proven guilty, then Sunderland will surely be sacking him altogether!
