The Sun reported that the escorts were invited over for a “three-hour sex session” during the ongoing crisis. Now, the team is not happy, and he’s had to apologize.

According to TMZ, the team released a statement, and said in part, “Footballers are global role models, and our staff and players have been working to support the incredible efforts of the NHS and other key workers in fighting the effects of the COVID-19 Coronavirus, in any way we can. Kyle’s actions in this matter have directly contravened these efforts.”

If you’re going to break the rules while in coronavirus quarantine, you might as well do it by swinging for the fence.

Reportedly inviting over a pair of escorts for a “three-hour sex session” is the definition of swinging for the fence.

How could you even be made at the man? We’re going into lockdown until further notice. You have to do what you have to do!

I might have finally found the one soccer player in the world who I actually don’t mind that much. Anybody who gives coronavirus the middle finger by throwing a party with escorts is okay in my book.

Was it smart? No, but most entertaining stuff never is. He apologized, and it’s time to move on. He’s probably also a legend in his locker room, but that’s a conversation for a different time.
