A former Premier League player has revealed why a bloody pig head ended up in the locker of his shocked teammate.

The incident happened in 2013 when Ryan Shawcross was captain at Stoke City.

Back then, the dressing room was involved in a massive prank war, but the pig head wrongly ended up in Kenwyne Jones’ locker.

"The pig's head had been building up all year," Shawcross told The Telegraph.

"It started off with something really silly like tomato ketchup in a wash bag, and then near the end came the pig's head.

"There was a case of mistaken identity and Kenwyne threw a brick through Glenn Whelan's car window. Great times!"

Striker Jonathan Walters had already revealed that he was responsible for bringing the pig head to the training ground before putting it in Matt Etherington’s locker as a prank.

However, Etherington thought it was Glen Whelan who was responsible and wanted to dump it into his locker, but mistakenly picked Jones’ one instead.

Jones, though, was not too impressed with the outrageous prank, telling the Shoot The Defence podcast in February that he couldn’t see a funny side in it and was really concerned.

"In different parts of the world different things have different meanings," he said , as per DailyMail.

"If you're going to take the time to get a pig's head, break my locker open and wrap my clothes in it, that's sending a different message to me.

"That's telling me the people I'm around don't really like me. Another player, they broke open his locker and put a rotten fish in there. Even if it was a rotten fish I wouldn't have minded, but the pig's head symbolised something a bit different."
