Four West Bromwich Albion players accused of stealing taxi in Spain


Alan Pardew said he felt "let down" after four of his West Bromwich Albion players allegedly stole a taxi following a night out on this week's trip to Barcelona.

Fantastic four: Implicated West Bromwich Albion players Jonny Evans, top left, Jake Livermore, top right, Gareth Barry, below left, Boaz Myhill, below right. And the club is conducting their own investigation.

The Premier League's bottom club announced on Friday that they had launched an investigation into an "incident" during the training break, involving four senior professionals who were later identified as Evans, Barry, Livermore and Myhill.

West Brom face Southampton in the fifth round of the FA Cup at The Hawthorns tomorrow afternoon.

"They've broken a curfew and that's unacceptable".

A Catalan police source confirmed the players had been questioned before returning to the UK.

Pardew has taken the club from above the drop zone to bottom of the table and he admitted that the job had been more challenging than he was expecting.

"The taxi was returned to its owner at around 8am".

Earlier this week, West Brom sacked chairman John Williams and chief executive Martin Goodman after the club's poor results this season.

"We would like to assure our supporters", the four players added, "that this incident does not reflect the determination and resolve we possess to do all we can to recover a hard season".

Regarding that, Pardew said on Friday: "Of course, they are good people and I was disappointed if I'm honest".

West Brom said the four players would be "subject to the full rigours of our internal disciplinary procedures", and the joint statement from the four players expressed regret. "We are conscious that every single week we've got a game one at a time to prepare", said Pellegrino.

A reporter then asked whether a taxi was involved and Pardew responded: "We've got an investigation into that so I'm not going put anything on that [rumour]".

"It's crucial that we try and get him back and ready for the run in because I still feel he can make a difference for us".

Need we remind you that West Brom are now flat bottom of the Premier League, seven points adrift and have only one league win to their name since Pardew took over in November. "The club made that call and now we have a new CEO (Mark Jenkins), I met him and we're going to move forward hopefully together".
