England football star kicked out of nightclub for taking cocaine
An England footballer was kicked out of a nightclub after he was caught snorting cocaine in the toilet, it has been revealed.
The unidentified star was allegedly spotted by a Premier League teammate ‘doing a line’ in the toilets of a nightclub on a recent night out.
A source claimed other teammates saw him emerging from the club’s toilets looking worse for wear and he was later bundled into the back of a cab by the manager – who thought he had simply ‘drunk too much’.
‘Everyone is talking about it,’ the insider told The Sun.
‘It wasn’t the club’s official Christmas party but a few drinks after a game and many of the players and manager were there.
‘One of the players saw him doing a line in the toilets then half an hour later he was all over the place. His jaw was working overtime and he was a mess.
‘He wasn’t just drunk. The gaffer was furious and got him out the back door and into a taxi thinking he had drunk too much.’
The footballer had tested negative for drugs just a day before the incident, meaning he knew he was unlikely to be tested within the next few days and could ‘get away with it’, it is claimed.
But the incident caused a rift within the dressing room.
They said the team had been suffering from ‘bad results’ on the pitch and it had happened at ‘the worst possible time’.
UK Anti-Doping is said to collect more than 5,000 samples from players last season, including almost 2,000 from Premier League players.
In the 2016/17 season there were only 1,171 samples collected from Premier League clubs – with an increase of 820 last year alone.
