Sad Crouch No Wolf Man Any More

Peter Crouch says he believes his Liverpool days are numbered after losing the privilege of taking the club’s wolf home at weekends.

Players at the club take it in turns to look after the wolf, named Django, and Crouch says his name has been scribbled out on the rota at the last minute twice in recent weeks.

He told us, “It doesn’t surprise me. The management know how close I am to that wolf and splitting us up seems like just another snub.”

Crouch has been linked with a move to Spurs, who have recently added a zebra and a eunuch to their menagerie.
