The club is aware of an image of Julio Cesar circulating on social networking feeds today (Tuesday 23rd April).
The image, which appeared on an Instagram account, has since been deleted. The club will be dealing with this issue internally.
Julio has issued the following statement regarding the image:
“I would like to clarify that last night I attended David Luiz’s fancy dress birthday party and as a joke for my friend, my family and I dressed as him.
“I want to assure everyone that absolutely no offence was intended.”
The club will be making no further comment at this time.
