Picture: Joe Allen’s cult hero status reaches new heights with brilliant Wikipedia edit

Posted by

The Joe Allen Appreciation Society is gaining new members every day.

We were already huge fans of the Liverpool midfielder, and his excellent performances to help Wales reach the quarter-finals of Euro 2016 have attracted even more admirers.

His cult hero status has now reached new heights with this brilliant Wikipedia edit on the page of Barcelona legend Xavi, who is also known as “the Spanish Joe Allen”, apparently!

Xavi might actually be more pleased than Allen with his new moniker. Wee Joe recently revealed that he prefers his comparisons to Italian pass-master Andrea Pirlo, as The Mirror reports.

Either would be lucky to share a football pitch with him.
