Carlton Cole Okirie is likely to be the first sold if a player exodus is triggered by the Tevez fine after his drunken driving antics.

Having been caught allegedly over the limit at 4.30AM driving his Audi 'erratically' through the streets of Westminster, the player will fall foul of new manager Zola's clean living attitude.

According to the Mail on Sunday, a club insider said: "This arrest could not have come at a worse time and the boss is sure to be angry."

Dans and Charlies

Although highly obvious, it doesn't bode well for a club trying to ditch its reputation as a team full of 'Fancy Dans' and 'Champagne Charlies'.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said in The Sun: 'At 4.25am on 23 September police pulled over an Audi Q7 on Victoria Embankment.

'A 24-year-old driver was spoken to and arrested on suspicion of driving with excess alcohol. He was taken to a central London police station and later bailed.'

Drink driving just isn't acceptable - end of. And for a player trying to force his way into the manager's reckoning, it's even more mindless.

I don't want him.
