If you see a drunk Russian stumbling down Seven Sisters Road looking lost in the next few weeks, then it’s likely to be one man and one man only. It appears as though Tottenham are about to replace a striker who enjoys the odd cigarette with someone who is, ahem, fond of a drink!
The Sun reveal that Roman Pavlyuchenko must have an English grandmother or something, that can be the only explanation for his binge drinking over the past couple of years. The striker plays with a smile on his face and it appears that he likes getting merry off the pitch as well!
The Russian hitman once confessed: “After a game against Slovan I had so much to drink I got lost. The other players had to come looking for me.
“The worst case was on the eve of my marriage. I drank so much I almost fell off my hotel balcony.
“It was the same after my daughter was born.”
If Pav helps Tottenham to start winning matches, Juande Ramos might turn a blind eye to the Russian’s taste for the hard stuff, although the striker will quickly learn that the English paparazzi will be on his tail as soon as they get a sniff of a story / alcohol in the air.
