One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson has reportedly been ordered to quit playing football for Doncaster.
The 21-year-old boyband star bought a part of Doncaster Rovers F.C. last year and was to make his debut with the team this week.
According to the UK’s Daily Star, his music management is putting an end to his relationship with the club after discovering their insurance premiums will skyrocket with Louis’ involvement.
“Players think of Louis as a squeaky-clean pop star and target him on the pitch,” a source said.
“1D bosses don’t want to take any chances, so they have told him to give it up. If he seriously hurt himself it could affect the rest of the band.”
Louis was recently forced to bow out of making his debut in a match against Scunthorpe after suffering an ankle injury during a charity game benefiting the Stiliyan Petrov Cancer Foundation.
He recently logged onto Twitter but appeared determined to push on.
“Unfortunately due to injury I cannot play at this week’s Doncaster Rovers match,” Louis wrote on Monday, adding, “I will play in another game in 2014, to be announced. I’m really sorry I can’t play.”
“Fans who do not wish to attend may also keep their ticket and exchange it for the rescheduled match, again for a reduced price of £3.”
The upbeat star added on Tuesday night that he would be tuning in, however, to see how the match plays out in his absence.
“Gutted I can’t play tomorrow but looking forward to watching the game,” he shared. “If your coming down see you there x.”
