London, September 27 (ANI): Liverpool's millionaire security expert George Cullen who runs an electronic ticketing system at the club's Anfield stadium has been exposed as an alleged cocaine supplier and a pimp.
The news is shocking as the businessman was a well-respected figure in the club and FA even believed that his ticketing system was revolutionary in curbing soccer hooliganism.
The man's illegal activities were exposed when he offered drugs and 150-an-hour prostitutes to reporters pretending to be clients.
The News of the World reports, that he told undercover reporters posed as owners of a foreign stadium interested in his ticketing system: "They say you shouldn't mix business with pleasure - but f*** that!
"I brought some (coke) with me. It's 100 pounds a gram. Peruvian flake. It's as good as you can get . . . just let me know how much you want."
Cullen also spoke about his own addiction to the drugs in the sting operation apart from the fact that he supplied it.
He said: "It's an accepted kind of night out you know. I'll sort it tomorrow. Good stuff, not touched by anybody. The cocaine thing, everyone's doing it. Just go for liquid Ecstasy.
"Coke is 100 pounds a gram here. If it's proper flake (pure cocaine) then 100 pounds is quite cheap."
He even showed two large wraps of white powder to the reporters.
Cullen then took the disguised investigators to a seedy nightclub and arranged for prostitutes.
He said: "Sarah and Miley are on their way. Both local girls, not Russians."
However, the next day when the reporters confronted him in their real identity, Cullen denied that he supplied drugs.
He said: "I haven't supplied you with anything."
But when he was told of video evidence, he said: "I supplied cocaine because you asked me to do so. I did it as a favour."
He also admitted he had arranged hookers for the reporter but insisted he was not involved in prostitution.
Meanwhile, a Liverpool representative said that Cullen was just a contractor and not an employee.
The spokesman said: "George Cullen is not an employee of the club. He is one of the many contractors/suppliers used by us - his expertise being in the field of IT and telecommunications.
"The club will conduct its own investigation." (ANI)
