‘Foreign players couldn’t believe our levels of drinking’

Recovering alcoholic Tony Adams has told BBC Radio 5 Live’s Hooked podcast that foreign footballers ‘couldn’t believe’ the levels of drinking in the English game when they arrived in the 1990s.

In the new episode, now available on BBC Sounds, the former Arsenal captain described how players such as Patrick Vieira and Emmanuel Petit, help change the mindset of players at Arsenal.
