Comedian choice was 'gross error of judgement'

The PFA chairman admitted it was a "really gross error of judgement" choosing comedian Reginald D Hunter to perform at last night's awards dinner, the Daily Mail reported.

He told the newspaper:

As the chairman I am embarrassed. I apologise unreservedly and it won’t happen again on my watch.

I thought that we made a really gross error of judgement in who we selected for our entertainment last night. I was embarrassed.

All that has gone on in football over the past few years, with everything that we purport to stand for, his set was inappropriate, it really was.
