Sonko Ain`t Superman

Sonko Ain`t Superman


Reading defender, Ibrahmima Sonko, has revealed that he does not feel like the man of steel with theimpending game with Chelsea at Staford Bridge on Boxing Day.

The Senegalese centre half has told the Sun that he is scared following death threat letters that he and team-mate Stephen Hunt received after injuries to both Chelsea keeper`s in the game at the Madejski Stadium in October.


'I've been scared. You have to take the letters seriously. Some people are nasty and capable of stupid things when it comes to revenge.

'At first it made me laugh, then when the second one came it started to get serious.
'I got scared. You don't know where the letters have come from so you don't know how to protect yourself.

'I was more worried about how and when they would do it. I can look after myself as long as I see it coming.

Hunt and Sonko injured Petr Cech and Carlo Cudicini respectively in accidental collisions at the Madejski Stadium and although both incidents have been dismissed as accidental, the death threats make it seem that everyone does not share this view.

Chelsea have promised to take extra precautions in light of all the controversy and drama surrounding the players as the teams final league meeting of the seasons draws ever closer. But it does not seem to put Sonko`s mind at rest:

'That incident has gone away. But now the next game is coming up.

'Knowing we are going to Chelsea next week, you think maybe this person will think about it again.

'This had nothing to do with Chelsea. It was stupid people with nothing to do other than sending letters.'

I'll be there right behind Sonko if the senseless Chelsea fans try anything. Note I say behind Sonko, as despite his modest words, he's blatantly Superman!
