Kyle Walker faces £240,000 fine after hiring two escorts during lockdown

Manchester City are set to fine Kyle Walker around £240,000 after he held a sex party with two escorts at his flat during the coronavirus lockdown.

The 29-year-old and his friend invited the two women to his apartment on Tuesday evening, just hours after he told his 1.5 million Twitter followers to strictly observe the lockdown measures in place.

‘Please everyone stay home, look after one another through this difficult time and check in on loved ones but don’t visit them,’ he posted.

Louise McNamara, 21, claims she left Walker’s flat at around 2am on Wednesday morning and said she was paid £2,200 in cash.

She told The Sun: ‘I work with an agency in Manchester. I got a message from my boss saying a high-profile client was looking for somebody classy.

‘I got a cab from Manchester to the address and a driver picked me up outside and took me to the gates of his apartment.

‘On the one hand he’s inviting strangers round to his house for sex, and the next day he’s lecturing everyone on the need to stay safe.

‘He’s a hypocrite and putting people at risk.’

According to The Times, Walker now faces a fine from Manchester City which could be up to two weeks’ salary – worth around £240,000.

Walker, who has been capped 48 times by England, issued an apology for his actions.

‘I want to take this opportunity to issue a public apology for the choices I made last week,’ Walker said in a statement.

‘I understand that my position as a professional footballer brings the responsibility of being a role model.

‘As such, I want to apologise to my family, friends, football club, supporters and the public for letting them down.

‘There are heroes out there making a vital difference to society at the moment, and I have been keen to help support and highlight their amazing sacrifices and life-saving work over the past week.

‘My actions are in direct contrast to what I should have been doing regarding the lockdown.’
