Danny Drinkwater’s career has taken a turn for the worse since his move from Leicester City to Chelsea.
First of all, the player has hardly featured for the Blues and that has seen his discipline fly out of the window. In the latest incident, Danny has been involved in a pub brawl which can see him out of action for up to a month.
A source told The Sun: “At one point he was curled up in a ball on the ground, as they repeatedly jumped up and down on his ankle and shouting, ‘Break his legs’. They knew he was a Premier League star and it was his livelihood. There was blood everywhere, and it was all incredibly nasty. Danny is absolutely mortified now and realises he can no longer put himself in a position where these incidents happen, regardless of who is at fault.”
A spokesman for the player said: “Danny accepts he put himself in a position where he can be criticised. He will take on the chin the criticism that comes his way. He knows he cannot allow himself to be targeted, and has to take himself away from these situations. He will address the concerns of those at the club privately, and honestly.”
