Manchester United’s Marouane Fellaini has risked the wrath of new manager Jose Mourinho after he was caught smoking a cigar on holiday. Images on The Sun website show the 28-year-old enjoying a smoke as he relaxed with some friends on a beach in Ibiza.
He said: “What football players do, millions and millions are watching, lots of kids are watching. I am not a specialist obviously, but I don’t think if a football player smokes one cigar or cigarette with friends in the summer when he is not training – I don’t think it affects his performance. What gets affected is that a kid at home says ‘if a top football player can smoke, then I can smoke’ and it is not a problem. It is more a social consequence than a physical consequence.”
