You Spanish doughnut

MANCHESTER United’s Spanish goalkeeper David de Gea has scored an own goal after stealing a £1.19 (1.4 euro) doughnut from Tesco.

The highly-rated 20-year-old was confronted by security staff at the store in Altrincham, Greater Manchester after being spotted on CCTV helping himself.

The Spanish Under-21 international, who earns around 80,000 euros a week, is alleged to have taken the Krispy Creme doughnut from a cabinet and scoffing it in the shop before attempting to leave without paying.

The keeper – signed from Atletico Madrid in the summer for a whopping 21 million euros – was taken to a back room to explain himself but was allowed to leave without any further action being taken.

  1. Tesco make huge profits,and are often very slow to respond to complaints about their products or services.
    So if David de Gea wished to taste the product before deciding to purchase,then why not?
    No doubt he found the Tesco Doughnut not to his taste,probably past it’s sell by date!
