Chelsea midfielder, Ross Barkley, was involved in a bizarre exchange with a cab driver over some cab fare on Monday, September 30, 2019.
The 25-year old was caught on video being escorted by police officers to a nearby money centre to withdraw money to pay for a taxi.
A seemingly drunk Barkley reportedly refused to pay the cab guy after allegedly spilling some chips in the cab.
Witnesses claim the midfielder was adamant he would not pay as “he had no cash”.
Footage which was also shared online showed some spilled chips on the floor of the cab which Barkley is believed to have been used moments before the mild drama.
Merseyside Police told Daily Mail that the midfielder, who is on a staggering KSh 12,700,000a week contract at Chelsea, was compelled to go to the cash machine to withdraw money to pay the cab guy.
Barkley had briefly returned to his home city from London after he made his first start for Chelsea in the comprehensive 2-0 win over Burnley on Saturday, September 28.
Hopefully he is able to put the mild off-pitch drama behind him in time for Chelsea’s Champions League tie against French side Lille on Wednesday, October 2.
