Thumbs up This will go down well

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has vowed to introduce an alcohol ban after Ledley King was arrested for an alleged assault outside a London nightclub.

Club captain King was arrested in the early hours of Sunday morning and questioned on suspicion of assaulting another man in Soho.
"I'll implement a strong rule next season that drinking is a no-no here," Redknapp told the Sun newspaper.

"Footballers should dedicate their lives to playing."
He added: "Footballers should not drink. You shouldn't put diesel in a Ferrari. I know it's hard but they are earning big money, they are role models to kids."
King has been bailed by police until mid-July while inquiries continue into the incident.

The 28-year-old defender has since apologised for the incident describing the evening "a night out with friends which went too far."

But Redknapp feels that an alcohol ban would prevent a repeat of the incident.

"We wouldn't get these problems if the players weren't drinking," he said.
"There's still too much of a drinking culture in English football but it's not as bad as it used to be.

"At Tottenham we do a lot with kids, a lot of them underprivileged.
"We have to set an example. Too much drinking goes on in this country. Too many people are not happy unless they have had a drink."

You can't ban people from drinking outside work. It's not legal to try and do so.

He's got a point about these people being highly paid and privileged though. It will never work though, especially considering footballers in london have got about 100 diff nightclubs to choose from

He will end up having to fine players for breaking rules every week. Will be funny though
