Manchester United defender Chris Smalling has apologised for dressing as a suicide bomber at a Christmas fancy dress party.
The self-styled Jagerbomber strapped Jagermeister and Red Bull to his body, along with the more traditional bomber acccessories of circuit boards and wires, reports The Sun.
His management firm Wasserman Media Group told the Associated Press: “Chris and his girlfriend hosted a fancy dress party to celebrate Christmas and their belated birthdays with close friends in the assumed privacy of his own home.
“He dressed in a costume consisting of empty bottles of Jagermeister and cans of Red Bull strapped to his chest in an attempted comedy play on the popular ‘Jagerbomb’ drink.
“Although he fully accepts in hindsight it was an ill-thought out and insensitive decision, absolutely no harm was intended whatsoever and he apologises for any offence caused.”
