Footballers in the 90s had lots of time on their hands. We’ve heard the tale about the Arsenal team having an eating competition on the way back from Newcastle United away but this story about a bet between Gazza and Steve Sedgley at Tottenham Hotspur is the weirdest.
In an interview with Darren Anderton on the Quickly Kevin podcast, the Spurs midfielder was asked about what happened when Gazza bet Tottenham Hotspur’s Steve Sedgley £20 to eat an urinal cake.
Not only did Steve take up the challenge but he went 1 step further. He demolished the urinal cake and when Gazza presented a cheque of £20, the Spurs midfielder tore it up and ate the cheque as well.
The don’t make midfielders like that anymore.
