Piers Morgan has slammed Callum Hudson-Odoi after the footballer was arrested in the early hours of Sunday morning – and called for the Chelsea star to be banned when football returns..”
It is claimed that the England international allegedly breached lockdown over the weekend to be with a woman who later called the police and an ambulance.
The Metropolitan Police confirmed that they and the London Ambulance Service had been called to ‘a report of an unwell woman’ at 03:53 on Sunday morning.
Morgan has now had his say on the incident, with the Good Morning Britain presenter speaking before Premier League clubs vote on a return to training on Monday.
He wrote on Twitter :
“These idiots unfairly tarnish the reputations of all footballers, and make a mockery of the ‘safety first’ plan to bring back the Premier League.
“They should be told if they get caught breaking lockdown rules like this, they’re banned from playing if football restarts.”
It is reported Hudson-Odoi had an argument with the woman at his west London home and remains in police custody. The unnamed woman was taken to hospital.
