Zenit St. Burger King Issue Brilliant Response To Rumours

Definitely one of the weirder footballing stories landed today when it was reported that fast food grilled burger aficionados Burger King had offered a lot of wonga to Russian side Zenit St. Petersburg to change their name to Zenit Burger King. The club have responded.

Of course commercialism in football is hardly a new thing or a surprise any more and energy drinks Red Bull own two football teams and an F1 team as well but sponsoring St Petersburg to change their name just seemed like a step too far.

Borrowing a scene from tv series Game of Thrones the club seemed to answer the offer on their twitter account, it's a surprise that they managed to find a scene without any sex or your favourite character dying in fairness:

It looks like Burger King will have to look elsewhere for their team. It's a shame for Zenit fans really who could have looked forward to Ashley Cole, Patrick Burger, Paulo Wanchope and Frank Le Boeuf playing for them...
