Leon Knight skips his third match for new club Coleraine to appear on Soccer AM

Interesting priorities from the ex-Chelsea man

Remember Leon Knight’s Twitter rant against Rushden and Diamonds after they activated a one-year extension to his contract to block a free transfer to Darlington?

Good. Well, since then the former Chelsea striker has signed for Northern Irish side Coleraine. He has scored three goals in his first two games, but bunked off what would have been his third appearance to make a TV appearance instead.

Knight’s new team-mates lost 2-0 at Crusaders, while he was in London following a pre-arranged appearance on Soccer AM.

While the club gave full approval for Knight to miss the match and he had mentioned the interview before signing for the club, you have to question his logic. He is trying to get his career back on track, he is scoring goals again and hoping to impress an English side enough to sign him in the summer, and he misses a match to go on TV.

At least he provided a humorous anecdote about Peter Taylor!
