Is It Time To Keep An Eye On Chopra?
Published : 07 Feb 2013 17:05:32
Michael Chopra has quit Twitter after posting a picture of a bag stuffed with money. Some of his actions of late have been rather worrying.
The accompanying message read: “Keep tweeting me about being in debt haha love it #cash #skint #lol #lendmeafiver.”
Later his account, @MichaelChopra10, which had almost 15,000 followers, disappeared.
An Ipswich Town spokesman: “Sometimes banter can be a little over the top.
“In an era when fans don’t get close to players it’s a good communication tool, but players should think before they tweet."
Chopra revealed the extent of his addiction in 2011, speaking publicly about how he had lost as much as £2million, spending up to £20,000 a day.
It later emerged that his club had loaned him £250,000 to pay off debts.
The player spent three weeks in the Sporting Chance Clinic last season in an attempt to beat the addiction.
Gazza has his own problems, but perhaps someone should keep an eye on Chopra, who has had a mountain of personal problems of late.
You know what ... perhaps a kind word from some Toon fans may help.
