I know it’s Christmas so I thought this was a bit of festive cheer, because he really can’t be serious! Freddie Ljungberg has joined Celtic today and the South Korean defender Cha Du-Ri admitted he was really looking forward to comparing underpants with Freddie!
Cha said: “Freddie Ljungberg is a very famous player and I like his underwear.
“Seriously, he’s a good player and I think he can help us. It’s great.”
“I have a lot of Calvin Klein underwear at home. Maybe I’ll show him.”
Cha will be leaving for the Asian Cup shortly, with his South Korea team mate Ki Sung-yueng, so he will miss Ljungberg’s debut which is chalked in for the big Old Firm derby on Jan 2nd, but the Korean is sure that the team will do well in his absence.
“I hope Celtic can be top of the league for me and Ki coming back from the Asian Cup,” said Cha.
“We have a lot of players both in my position and Ki’s position, so I’m not worried. I’m sure they can play well without us.”
But can they survive without his underpants!
