Two Former Chelsea Players That Were Sacked By The Club For Using Cocaine.

No matter what our occupation is, doing drugs will never be normal, and it is frowned upon all over the world. The rules against the use of hard drugs in football are very strict and clear, but somehow some players still break the law.

Diego Maradona was the most famous footballer who was caught using drugs, but some other footballers have also chosen the wrong path and some of them played for Chelsea.

Chelsea Football Club is one of the biggest clubs in Europe and the club prides itself in rich tradition and ethical behaviors.

The Two Players That Were Sacked by Chelsea for Using Drugs:

Adrien Mutu:

Mutu was one of the first big money signings that Roman Abramovich made. The Romanian forward moved to Chelsea in August 2003 and after initially impressing, he suffered from lack of form and also fell out with Claudio Ranieri and Jose Mourinho.

In September 2004, Mutu was found to have consumed cocaine.

Mutu was banned for seven months by the FA and he was also sacked by Chelsea in October 2004.

Mutu later played for other clubs like Fiorentina and Juventus. He was also banned at Fiorentina for using a banned substance.

Mark Bosnich:

The former Manchester United and Aston Villa goalkeeper was also found guilty of cocaine consumption while he was at Stamford Bridge. The Australian goalkeeper was banned from football for nine months and he was also sacked by Chelsea the following year.

Chelsea are a club that do not condone using of hard-drugs or banned substances in football.
