This Premier League season is turning out to be disastrous for West Bromwich not only on field, but off it as well.

The Baggies are currently placed at the bottom of the standings, with just three wins in 27 games played so far.

Perhaps, it was this that prompted manager Alan Pardew to take his boys to Barcelona, Spain, for a training camp.

What happened there, though, just added to their problems.

According to The Sun, four of West Bromwich players – Jonny Evans, Gareth Barry, Jake Livermore and Boaz Myhill – have landed themselves in trouble after stealing a taxi following a night out.

The quartet reportedly took over a cab and drove it off McDonald’s drive-through to the hotel they were staying at before abandoning the vehicle. The police later questioned the players.

The players, who were previously unnamed, released a statement, apologising and promising their cooperation in further investigation.

“WE would like to take this opportunity to apologise to our team-mates, the head coach, the club and especially the supporters for the events which have been the subject of widespread and negative publicity.

“We felt it important we identify ourselves as the players involved in an incident which occurred during the training camp in Spain this week out of respect for team-mates who otherwise could be implicated by association.

“We freely acknowledge and apologise for the break of curfew, which we accept represented a breach of the standards of professionalism required of us as representatives of West Bromwich Albion FC.

“The club has informed us that it will now conduct its own inquiry into the incident and we will co-operate fully.

“In the meantime, we would like to assure our supporters that this incident does not reflect the determination and resolve we possess to do all we can to recover a difficult season.”
