… go into hiding

Bayern Munich defender Christian Lell came up with an ingenious plan to avoid a move to Stoke City. The 25-year-old went into hiding until the transfer window was safely shut and his proposed move to the Potteries scuppered.

Tony Pulis was keen to meet Bayern’s £3 million asking price, but the player himself was nowhere to be seen and could not be tracked down by his club.

Stoke had already missed out on Atletico Madrid pair Johnny Heitinga and Luis Perea.

    This is absoultely ridiculous, why have they got something against Stoke?!

    I don’t support them but still really admire what they have done and what they are trying to achieve. I don’t think you’ll all be laughing at Stoke by the end of the season.

    come on guys lighten up, its not about laughing at Stoke or slagging them off, its about the lengths this guy took to avoid getting sent there. I think its well funny. Fair play to him, he worked the system and will comfortably warm the bench in his mother land for the rest of the season I guess. Not the career i would want to pursue personally but a good way of avoiding being shipped off like cattle to a place in Blighty he has probably never heard of.

    Never heard of the sausage eating turd. Let him stay on the bench where the German helmet belongs.
