Those who remember Lee Sharpe from his football days, may have recognised him and his lovely family wandering around the seaside town of Javea on the Northern Costa Blanca. Lee and his wife Lucy made Javea their new home after a trip to visit friends last year.

One year on, the family is settled and have decided to do something they have wanted to do for a long time, open a sports bar with a difference.

Lee, a familiar face for Manchester United fans and those who watch football on Sky Sports, said: “We have thought about opening a sports bar for some time now. We had seen the An Shebeen, a local Irish pub that we thought had so much more potential. So, when the lease came up for renewal, we jumped at the opportunity to take over the venue.”

Wife Lucy agreed. “We have always to do something different. We don’t want to be just another bar showing English football, we want to be a home from home, a cosy place where all families can go and enjoy themselves.”

Lee continued: “We will show many different sports from horse racing to football to rugby, and not just from the UK but from other countries around Europe and the world. We have seven TVs and the capability to show different sports on each. But we intend to go further than that, to use my sporting career to make the bar interactive. That means making myself and other sports personalities available for question-and-answer sessions, doing my TV broadcasts from the pub and so on.”

Lee and Lucy are opening the bar in partnership with friends Aiden Roche and Juan Pintor. Aiden, with experience in managing gyms and clubs, will take responsibility for the bar area. Speaking about the bar, Aiden said: “People will be able to enjoy a drink at the bar or in one of the cubicles. We will be offering a wide range of alcohol and beers, including freshly brewed beer from the VATs that we are busy installing.”

A separate area to the front of the bar has been set aside for a coffee shop, a place where Lucy says she and her friends would feel comfortable dropping in, with or without their children, for a hot drink and something light to eat. There is also a separate lounge area for those who don’t want to sit in the bar, which will also be used for functions and the interactive sessions.

Lucy explained: “Not only will we offer hot drinks and light snacks, but we will also be offering a range of food that we have developed in partnership with a qualified chef.” The third partner in the business, Juan Pintor, is helping with this, bringing his experience from running two bars in Benidorm.

Lee says he doesn’t miss not being fully involved in the football scene and that he is “looking forward to being involved in the pub and to resurrecting his charitable work.” Lee has a foundation that was very active a few years ago in working with young offenders in South Africa.

The bar, which is likely to be called Sharpey’s, is due to open later this month.

Image: PixabayPiers Morgan viciously rants at Adele and calls her a ‘pampered prima donna’.The 56-year-old former Good Morning Britain host Piers has viciously ranted at Adele. He blasted her for cancelling her Las Vegas shows and disappointing fans.Piers went as far as to call Adele a “privileged, pampered prima donna.” Piers believes that Adele’s fans “believed in her because she was a working-class girl who treated them as equals”.He feels that she has let them down and has cancelled shows when she should carry on.“Now she has morphed into just another staggeringly rich, privileged, pampered prima donna who thinks it’s fine to pull the plug on months of shows at a moment’s notice because she can’t get everything she demands”, ranted Piers.“The show didn’t go on for Adele — last seen on British TV a few weeks ago lapping up nauseatingly sycophantic compliments from a drooling celebrity audience — because her ego is now writing cheques her fans couldn’t even dream of cashing.“And frankly, it’s a disgrace.”Piers continued his rant over how Adele had let her fans down.Piers commented: “If Freddie Mercury can make an album as he was literally dying, then she could probably have found the inner strength to pocket $500,000 a night to sing a few songs even if the set design wasn’t absolutely perfect.“That would have been the right thing to do for the fans she professes to love so much.”He went on to add: “But sadly, it would appear health-obsessed Adele’s disappeared up her rapidly diminishing celebrity backside, and no amount of weeping and wailing can change that very disappointing fact.”Thank you for taking the time to read this article, do remember to come back and check The Euro Weekly News website for all your up-to-date local and international news stories and remember, you can also follow us on Facebook and Instagram.

Tiger King Joe Exotic's Lawyer Claims He Has 'gone Missing In Prison'

Tiger King Joe Exotic’s lawyer claims he has ‘gone missing in prison’. Image: UFO Chronicles Podcast, TwitterTiger King Joe Exotic has ‘gone missing’ in prison according to a claim by his lawyer A lawyer for Joe Exotic, star of the Netflix series ‘Tiger King’, on Tuesday, January 25, made a sensational claim that his client has gone ‘missing’ inside Butner Federal Medical Centre in North Carolina, the prison where he is serving 22 years.With a re-sentencing court hearing coming up in Oklahoma City this Friday 28, civil lawyer, John M. Phillips, took the rather unconventional legal route of using Facebook and Twitter to locate his ‘missing client’.“Good grief, The United States Department of Justice, US Attorney for the Western District of Missouri, where is Joseph A Maldonado?”, wrote Phillips. “My legal calls rejected Friday and for this Monday. Opposing counsel won’t respond to me”.Adding, “The Federal Bureau of Prisons (FBP) told me they won’t tell me when or where he’s being moved. We have a hearing – where is my client? FBI – Federal Bureau of Investigation?”.Later on, when messaged by a user asking if he had ‘found his client’, Phillips ambiguously replied, ‘sort of’.Joe Exotic is currently doing 22 years after being found guilty of plotting to kill one of his rival zookeepers, Carol Baskin, the founder of Big Cat Rescue. The docu-series featuring their lives working with big cats was a massive hit on Netflix, and recently spawned a second series.Tiger King 2 continued to delve into the disappearance of Don Lewis, as well as covering Exotic Joe’s sentencing, as reported by dailystar.co.uk.___________________________________________________________Thank you for reading, and don’t forget to check The Euro Weekly News for all your up-to-date local and international news stories, and remember, you can also follow us on Facebook and Instagram.
