ILO to launch inquiry into working conditions at Manchester United

November 8, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

The International Labour Organisation is to start an immediate investigation into working conditions for players in the Premier League, after Manchester United’s Tomasz Kuszczak revealed he is being treated like a “slave”.

This has added weight to rumours that players at more clubs are in similar positions, being paid tens of thousands of pounds each week to do absolutely nothing.

An ILO spokesperson announced, “This latest shocking revelation is the final straw as we’ve been aware of human rights abuses against Premier League stars for many years.

“We are monitoring another situation at United where a number of attacking players are apparently being forced to try to form a partnership with Dimitar Berbatov.

“The mere idea is simply despicable.”

An Amnesty International statement read, “We will be exploring the claims fully as a matter of urgent priority.

“We have already been contacted by an Argentinian man by the name of Carlos who insists he will testify to being treated horrendously in Manchester in recent seasons.”

    One of your best articles yet!

    Maybe this is why Ashley Cole nearly swerved off the road when he heard Arsenal were only going to pay him £55k a week. It’s virtually slave labour.
