Zat Knight 'I've Done Nothing Wrong'

Zat Knight has told the Birmingham Mail: 'I have done nothing wrong.'

Following yesterdays events, Zat Knight Arrested Shocker the newly arrived Villa defender explained:

'The police said they had to bring me to a station, and they were just doing their job, so I co-operated with them - I was in a police cell for about five minutes and no more than that. I got into a police car with them because the area was congested but the police officers were good as gold, and I understand they were just doing their job. I just answered some questions and then the police dropped me at home. I haven't spoken to the other members of my family about it.'

Meanwhile club spokesman Phil Mepham has also clearly stated:

'At no point was Zat ever considered to be a suspect but because he was caught up in the inquiry he was, as a matter of course, detained for questioning. His conduct throughout was described by the police as exemplary and no charges were made and none are expected.'

The 27-year-old, who hasn't had the best of starts to his Villa career following yesterdays baptism of fire added:

'I just do what I do and am trying to make a career for myself. The fans haven't got anything to worry about. I'm committed to the club. Whatever has happened has happened and I am just concerned with what I'm doing. I know my career here has got off to a bit of a bad start but I'm happy to be here. Everyone knows I'm an Aston Villa fan. I have spoken to Martin O'Neill about it and he gave me his full support. He realises that I have done nothing wrong. It is a dream move for me and just hasn't started off very well.'

His 26-year-old brother has appeared at Sutton Coldfield Magistrates court today charged with possession with intent to supply class A drugs.

Knew this yesterday but couldn't say just in case the media didn't find out. I actually said there would be suprise in my post. Hope he has no baggage that slows him up even further.

There you go then. That clearly explains it all. Hope that satisfies all of you doubters out there. I never questioned the signing for one minute. Not one. I fully believed the broken jaw explanation too, and I believe in fairies and Father Christmas. I guess the moral of this incident is, 'never ever jump to conclusions'. Does that make sense,....glensider!!!

I suppose that he deserves the benefit of the doubt, but even so.......
