Whilst arguably not as offensive as some of Richard Keys many many comments it was probably ill advised for the former England and Tottenham man to make these comments. However we are talking about an individual who has previously stated that those with physical disabilities had probably done something wrong in a past life, so this is probably not a big shock. Audio on this is very bad by the way, offensive joke outlined below.

Glenn Hoddle has apologised for the inappropriate ‘joke’ he made as he provided co-commentary during Monday night’s clash between Fulham and Chelsea.
The former England manager embarrassed employers Sky after he responded to the sight of Fernando Torres squandering a goalscoring opportunity in the 0-0 draw.
During the encounter, Twitter was swamped with reaction to Hoddle jokingly comparing Chelsea’s out-of-form £50million signing to the ‘Chinese player Knee Shin Toe’.
‘I can only apologise to those who took offence,’ Hoddle said today. ‘There’s no excuse. It’s an old football expression and I understand I can’t say things like that.’ (Daily Mail)
