Carlton Cole has spoken out about his arrest for drunk-driving last week, and has earned the respect of his manager for doing so.

"I let the club down and am sorry to the fans," he said in an attempt to clarify the events of the last week which led to him being arrested and scoring.

"It hasn’t been the best week for me but I will take my punishment. You can’t do things like this. You can’t do it and be a top player. These are all learning curves for me and I’ve learned my lesson. I won’t make a mistake like this again."

The player was fined £40,000 by the club for the misdemeanour, and he now hopes to keep his season going and put the matter behind him.

"I hadn’t been out for so long. The one time I go out I get caught for it so the past has come back to bite me on the a*se. It’s life, what goes around comes around.

"The club have been very supportive. Hopefully, I can play like I did against Fulham and try to get results for the club. The manager knows what I can do. He knows I have changed as a man and a player.

"I have had a discussion with him and the board. I’ve apologised for being stupid. I am not an alcoholic. Everyone will agree that usually I am the first one in and last one out at training."

We aren't alcoholics either... that's why Steve's keys are with the barman at the Dog.

Oh, didn't we tell you that Steve?
