Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure has been punished for driving drunk.
As it has been reported recently, a police inspector has stopped Yaya Toure’s car. The player turned out to be in a state of alcoholic intoxication.
Now the court has passed sentence on Touré: the Ivorian driver’s license was suspended for a period of 18 months.
In addition, the footballer will need to pay 54 thousand pounds of fine.
“Everyone knows I am a Muslim and always refuse alcohol.”
“Nevertheless, I accept this punishment and want to apologize for this situation. Even though I did not plan to drink this evening” – said Touré
This problem seems not so serious for Yaya, because he has recently got along with Guardiola. As a result, he got a place in the first team, having scored twice already.
