23 Jan 07, 7:10 PM - Unsporting behaviour
Whilst it may not be on a par with footballer Eric Cantona's infamous flying karate kick at a spectator a few years ago, the news that Aston Villa midfielder Lee Hendrie allegedly insulted a disabled Manchester United fan is worrying.
Andy Wild, a wheelchair-using United supporter, claims that Hendrie insulted him after becoming involved in a slanging match with the opposing team's fans whilst the player was warming up near the disabled supporters' area. Hendrie, however, strongly denies the allegations.
Crippled Monkey, who freely admits to knowing nothing about football, likes Manchester United better than Aston Villa anyway. But that's all to do with the colour of their strip, obviously. I'm such an aesthetic Monkey, aren't I?
