Oh for heaven’s sake, not again Adrian Mutu!
“Got any stuff?”
Drugs, they’re a bloody nightmare. They can turn moon-faced schoolkids into grotty old homeless women in less than a month, taken in the correct dosage. And the sad truth is that once you get that hunger for drugs, it will gnaw away at your insides, tap your withered shoulders, and whisper strange imaginary messages into your sweating ears until you get the next hit.
They’re no walk in the park.
Just ask Fiorentina’s Adrian Mutu, who has very recently proved that the old warning about smaller drugs leading onto harder ones can actually work the other way too, by testing positive for Sibutramina – a stimulant that counters hunger (so says The Daily Mail).
It wasn’t so long ago that Chelsea fired the player for failing a drug test – one which suggested that he’d been spending wild evenings in the nation’s capital getting all Mark Bosnich about it - and now he could face a ban of up to four years.
Shame really, because the word on the street is that he was just starting to play well again.
Learn from his mistake kids – just say “no”.
Or, like, “yes”, and then “no”.
Up to you really.
It’s your life.
