Lua Lua Petition- Premier League

Lua Lua Petition- Premier League

Lua Lua has been told he cannot where his son`s initials on the back of his shirt next season. The premier league has refused this request;

"I am gutted.This season is for Jesus and I thought it would be a nice way of helping his memory live on.

"I asked the club to contact the Premier League.

"The secretary came back and told me they would not allow me to have my son`s initial on the back of my shirt.

"I could not believe it. I did not want his whole name on the shirt — just his initial and I do not
see what harm that would do.

"I am still struggling to come to terms with losing Jesus and have not even been able to bring myself to visit his grave.

"My family keep on telling me I should throw all his toys away but I cannot do it.'

I have an email address of someone high up at the Premier League, after I did some work for them. Send me your emails pleading with them to allow Lua Lua to wear his sons initials on the back of his shirt and I will send them to the Premier League.

I know this is a different example, and it is still the players name but the Premier Legaue recently allowed Blackburn's Morten Gamst Pedersen to now display "Gamst" as opposed to "Pedersen" on his shirt at his request. Has something to do with Gamst being his mothers maiden name. Let LuaLua show his tribute, what harm will it do...

i agree with pompey rug, wheres the harm, of course he could always change his name then they couldnt stop it. Perhapse u2us@skysports.com might be a helpfull address to use.
