The past year has been a tough one for Chelsea midfielder Danny Drinkwater as he failed to play a game for the Blues under former boss Maurizio Sarri. Rather, the 29-year-old has mostly made the news for the wrong reasons over the year.
After his latest club incident, the Blues midfielder who’s on loan to Burnley is reportedly set to meet manager Sean Dyche to discuss his future after being attacked at a nightclub by a gang of men in Manchester.
Drinkwater suffered facial cuts and bruises in the attack and a “badly injured ankle” that is likely to see him sidelined for several weeks, according to Sky Sports News.
Drinkwater only moved to Burnley from Chelsea in August on a temporary deal until January, but his future with Sean Dyche’s side is believed to be uncertain as the Burnley boss is said to be concerned at the incident but “not planning” to cancel Drinkwater’s loan.
A report by the Telegraph claims that Chelsea will allow Burnley to deal with the matter as they see fit.
“Dyche will want a personal explanation of what happened when Drinkwater returns to the club for treatment,” states the Telegraph.
The report also added: “Burnley are yet to decide whether Drinkwater will be fined and will wait to find out the account of the 29-year-old.
“Drinkwater is believed to be ¬remorseful for putting himself in a position to attract more controversy and is eager to kick-start his career once fit again.”
