Former Tottenham star Kevin-Prince Boateng has been pictured after a Schalke game having a smoke and a casual beer.
Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere got an almighty onslaught of criticism after a picture emerged of him smoking outside a nightclub, something Arsene Wenger branded as unacceptable.
In complete contrast, former Spurs star Kevin-Prince Boateng has been pictured in Bild smoking and having a drink following FC Schalke’s 2-1 win in the recent Bundesliga game at Bayer Leverkusen.
“This is after our 2-1 win in Leverkusen before the doping test – athletes sometimes drink after a competition so they can get through doping control faster,” Schalke general manager Horst Heldt is quoted by Bild.
An interesting tactic for any player looking to give his doping control urine sample quicker but not something which is likely to be condoned by a lot of top flight bosses around the rest of Europe.
A penny for Wilshere’s thoughts?
