West Brom have been embroiled in an investigation after a number of their players reportedly stole a taxi during a mid-season trip to Spain.
Reports claim that the players were ‘quizzed’ about suggestions that they stole a taxi from McDonald’s following a drunken night out.
While this might be extremely hard to believe, West Brom have actually been forced to release a statement on the incident.
They have confirmed that four senior players were involved in an ‘incident’ while out in Spain.
Not only that, they have confirmed that they will commence their own investigation into the incident and will deal with the players in question if the investigations bring back an indication that it did take place.
“The Club can confirm that four senior players were involved in an incident during this week’s mid-winter training trip to Spain,” the statement read.
“The Club has instigated its own investigation into the incident and the players will be subject to the full rigours of our internal disciplinary procedures.
“Until such time as that investigation has been completed, the Club will not be making any further comment.”
While there are no indications as to which players were involved, it certainly won’t help Alan Pardew and his side.
That is because the side are already bottom of the Premier League and their results don’t look like getting much better.
Add an investigation of theft into four senior players and it’s not ideal survival conditions.
