Just last week former England and Liverpool “striker” Emile Heskey turned down a £90-a-week contract with Blackpool. Having been released by Aston Villa over the summer, Heskey is a free agent. However, the offers haven’t exactly been flooding in and he was believed to be regretting turning down Blackpool before this new offer was presented.
Heskey has now signed a rolling contract with the government which will see him picking up £64 every single week, tax free, as long as he can prove he’s been looking for work.
