According to The Sun via Daily Mail, Chelsea midfielder Ross Barkley, currently on loan at Aston Villa, was kicked out of a bar in a central London hotel after a drunken row with diners and staff.
The 27 year old Chelsea midfielder had been spending Thursday evening with a friend in The May Fair Hotel in central London, before the row erupted.
A source told The Sun: “Ross Barkley was wasted. I first spotted him arguing with someone before it really kicked off. Ross was politely told to leave. But they came back, stumbling around packed tables and really slurring.
“Then the security staff spotted him and they were escorted into the main foyer. It got heated. They were arguing. It almost got physical, with the bouncer just pushing them out of the way.
“Some taxis then refused to take him because he was so p*. It was embarrassing.
“It was shocking that a professional sportsman and England star could behave in this way in public. Young fans look up to players like him, and it’s really not on to behave in such a disgraceful way.”
Barkley – who earns around £100,000-per-week – joined Aston Villa on a season-long loan from Chelsea in September, and has made 24 Premier League appearances for Dean Smith’s men this term, scoring once.
