WTPS: Les: I could have been killed

Posted on 11 January 2002  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Pat Sheehan's back page lead in the Sun sums up the concerns over the bottle-throwing incident at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night.

Les Ferdinand was almost struck by the glass beer bottle as he celebrated his equaliser in the Worthington Cup against Chelsea.

"If that bottle had hit me in the wrong place, it could easily have killed me. I don't want to sound alarmist but that is the cold reality of what could have happened.

"Unfortunately over the last month or so there has been a big increase in this kind of missile throwing. It has got to stop before a professional player is seriously injured."

Most of the newspapers go big on the indicent and it's on the back page of the Daily Star as well.
