I Have No Idea Who Either Of These People Are

I now it's from the Star, which is hardly reputable, but this is the same journo who broke that we were signing Rio before anyone else knew.

Ribery questioned over child prostitute scandal

Premier League target Franck Ribery has been questioned by a judge over a child prostitution scandal.

The Bayern Munich winger, wanted by Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City, was quizzed about allegations that a Paris nightclub was employing underage girls as escorts.

Ribery's international team-mate Sidney Govou was also summoned by judge Yves Dando, who is investigating.

There are allegations that at least one Les Bleus star has had sex with a hooker under the age of 18, an offence which is punishable in France by up to three years in prison.

The unnamed player is claimed to have has admitted sleeping with the girl, but said he believed she was an adult at the time.

A so-called "pimp" said to have organised girls for players has been arrested, and a number of young women are being questioned too.

A source said the players involved were unlikely to be charged, and Ribery's lawyer Sophie Bottai said: "My client was called as a witness, but had no other part to play in this matter. The matter stops there."

Jean-Pierre Escalettes, president of the French Football Federation, said: "An investigation is underway. There is nothing else to say at the moment.

Torres explains surgery decision

Fernando Torres has spoken of his disappointment at requiring a knee operation which may have ended his domestic season.

The striker could be out for six weeks after undergoing an operation on torn cartilage in his right knee.

Torres is gutted to be missing Thursday's clash with former club Atletico Madrid - but insists there was no other option.

He said: "We explored all our possibilities before deciding upon an operation. The meniscus was affected and the doctors thought surgery was best.

"The injury occurred in the second minute of the Benfica match at Anfield. I played 85 minutes with an injured knee and if I had been thinking about the World Cup, I would have asked to be substituted right there and then.

"I would have loved to return to Atleti and come face to face with the fans again, but I will have many more opportunities in the future."

Torres is confident he will be back in time for the World Cup in June.

He added: "I have been waiting four years for this and, if all goes well, I do not anticipate missing it. I have already begun recovery work today."

Jesse Williams Supports the LA Galaxy

If this doesn't warrant a post of its own, I'll delete it immediately :). But the MLS does deserve some love!

LA Galaxy beat Real Salt Lake 2-1 last night, making the Galaxy's goal total 7 for this season and setting a league record. Last year the Galaxy lost to Real Salt Lake in the finals in penalties, so....REVENGE IS SWEET. It was a physical game, but the Galaxy prevailed with two goals by the ON FIRE, Edson Buddle.

And now, photography by yours truly of Jesse Williams. He sat two rows in front of us...You bet my friends and I took not-so-covert pictures. You may know him as Dr. Avery on Grey's Anatomy or remember him as Leo (the NUDE model), in Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants II.

In case you can't see what he looks like....

Well, yeah, this post was sort of relevant. Also, LA Galaxy needs a tag.
