ROGER Johnson, Wolves’ £4.5m summer signing and club captain, turned up for training drunk after his side’s 5-0 drubbing by Fulham.
The player – who club have branded “totally unacceptable” over the incident – was told to train with the reserve team after it was noticed he was in an inebriated state the morning after the night after the away defeat.
Johnson said: “My conduct and approach to training on Monday was below the high standard the club rightly needs and demands of me, and what I demand of myself.
“As a result, I have apologised to the manager, my team-mates and the club.”
This reminds me of a great drinking game called Whiskey At Work – the rules are quite simple.
Take a hip flask to work. If you are asked to carry out a task, take a swig. If someone asks if you’re drinking whiskey, take two swigs. The aim is to try not to get fired.
Of course, don’t try this if you happen to be a professional footballer.
