Fredi: Logo's a Sin
by Martin Lipton
Former Spurs and West Ham striker Fredi Kanoute is refusing to wear the sponsors' logo on his shirt at Sevilla - because he believes gambling is a sin.
British on-line gambling company 888.com, who are sponsoring Middlesbrough, are Sevilla's new backers in a #3million-a-year deal.
But Malian striker Kanoute has told the club he will only wear a shirt with no logo as he is not prepared to advertise something that goes against his strong Muslim faith.
