Who says footballers don’t know the value of anything? Newcastle defender James Perch was acutely aware that a fiver would be of great use to someone. It’s just that nobody wanted to take it off him.
The utility man found a £5 note on the St James’ Park pitch during last night’s 1-2 defeat to Everton. He attempts to hand it to members of the Toon Army who are reluctant to accept the money.
Perchinho instead has to give the money to a steward for safekeeping.
Meanwhile, Rio Ferdinand must be thinking that Newcastle would be a safer place to be hit by money than Manchester City.
