Saudi Arabia’s Moral Police Arrest Footballer For Showing Jesus Tattoo: Rooney To Riyadh

TO Saudi Arabia, where Colombian footballer Juan Pablo Pino’s Jesus tattoos have led to his arrest.

The Saudi moral police pounced when Pino, who plays in the country’s league, displayed his ink in a Riyadh shopping mall. The local law states that tattoos must be covered at all times.

Pino expressed “deep sorrow” for his actions and after heated debate has been released.

Anorak wonders if Wayne Rooney would like to use his enforced break from international football to play in Saudi for the Skins team against the Burkas? His subsequent jailing would cure England of the malaise of ever having to pick a player who plays as if he’s doing his country a favour…
