Former England footballer Adam Johnson has reportedly started a prison football team which includes fellow sex offenders in his cell block.
The team at the Moorland Prison will allegedly be trained by Johnson, who wants the team to wear Sunderland shirts during matches, according to British newspaper The Star.
‘Johnson is delighted to be playing football again, although he’s not that happy that his team is going to be made up of paedos and perverts,’ a source told the Star on Sunday.
‘Football is his life. He has been told to get a team trained up ready to play against other wings in the prison.’
‘Some of the matches will be a bit fruity because sex offenders are probably the most hated inmates in the prison. The team are training a couple of times week but he thinks they should be training every day.’
The former Sunderland midfielder, who won the Premier League with Manchester City in 2012, was jailed for 6 years after admitting to grooming and sexual activity with a 15-year-old.
