Chris Smalling has been forced to apologise for wearing a suicide bomber's garb to his birthday party. Or rather, he has had to apologise for being pictured on the front of the Sun wearing a suicide bomber's garb to his birthday party. The centre half strapped bottles of Jagermeister and Red Bull to his body in a play on the 'Jagerbomb' drink.
Smalling issued a statement apologising for the picture via his management company.
Chris and his girlfriend hosted a fancy dress party to celebrate Christmas and their belated birthdays with close friends in the assumed privacy of his own home.
He dressed in a costume consisting of empty bottles of jagermeister and cans of Red Bull strapped to his chest in an attempted comedy play on the popular 'jager bomb drink'.
Although he fully accepts in hindsight it was an ill-thought out and insensitive decision, absolutely no harm was intended whatsoever and he apologises for any offence caused.
Oh and this is the best thing Brian Moore has written in a while.
Re Chris Smalling - to be fair, it's the only way that he was ever going to be described as explosive.
