Jones' girlfriend: Pig stunt 'not even close to funny'

The girlfriend of Stoke City striker Kenwyne Jones has criticised the prank by his team-mates that involved placing a pig's head in his locker.

She tweeted that it was "not even close to funny" as Jones is a Rastafarian, so does not eat pork:
