Playing football for the England squad and top UK team Manchester United he is both rich and famous. A secure future should be on the cards for Wayne.
The news reprots today which have stated that Wayne's father and uncle are amongst a group of people arrested for illegal betting, will have not done his football career any good though
Jennings is also from the Liverpool area. In last December's match he received a yellow card early in the game. An increase in bets in the Liverpool area that Jeenings would be sent off followed. His sending off in the 84th minute saw bookies paying out huge somes of money on these bets.
Of course it could have been a coincidence.
However UK authorites were concerned enough to investigate and today arrested nine people. A police spokesperson told SkyNews in a statement that, "Detectives have today executed warrants at 10 addresses across Merseyside and Glasgow and arrested nine men as part of an investigation into suspicious betting activity.The arrests are the culmination of a joint operation with the Gambling Commission and the nine who have been arrested for conspiracy to defraud are being interviewed by detectives.Those arrested are a 29-year-old from Bootle, a 48-year-old from West Derby, a 54-year-old from Norris Green, a 26-year-old from Croxteth, a 22-year-old from Kirkdale, a 31-year-old from Litherland, a 68-year-old from Fazakerley, a 36-year-old from Kirkby and a 26-year-old from Glasgow."
Jennings denies any wrongdoing.
