AP Reuters: A scandal of unbelievable proportions has hit the football world.
A creditable source has come forward and indicated that nearly the entire Chelsea football squad was "drugged" during their game with Liverpool yesterday. The name of the person responsible is not known at this time and only a street name of "renegade" remains the only information authorities have to go on.
The source goes on to say, it is believed this "Renegade" person slipped into the Chelsea locker room shortly before yesterday's game and slipped what is believed to be Quaaludes into the sport drinks of the following players.
Michael Essien, Paulo Ferreira, Branislav Ivanovic, John Terry, Fernando Torres and Ross Turnbull.
It is said that Ross Turnbull had at least three helpings while most admit to only one. Fernando Torres admits to having some but says "I did not swallow".
Further information being released at this time seems to indicate some kind of grudge this "Renegade" person had against Fernando Torres but it remains unclear why the rest of the players were targeted.
Roberto di Matteo remains unavailable for comment.
