We all know that most footballers have a taste for the booze, especially when their season has finished and they don’t have to report for training on the Monday. However, it appears that four members of the Portsmouth squad didn’t know when to stop after their team won the FA Cup final, according to the Daily Mail. They report that Harry Redknapp is not best pleased with the unnamed quartet who apparently drunk the bar dry despite not playing any part in the Wembley final itself.
“These four lads didn’t play in the final,” said Redknapp, “but they couldn’t even put their beer down on the bus.
“We got back for the reception and the four of them just stood there until they were invited to go home.
“They’re players at my club but they might not be for much longer.”
Goodness, chill out Harry, it’s not as though they started hitting each other with golf clubs or urinated on the bar, as has been the way when footballers have got together in the past. It’s probable that we’re talking about a bunch of youngsters who were set to be released anyhow.
