Wolverhampton Wanderers have disciplined captain Roger Johnson after the defender reported for training worse for wear on Monday.
Johnson allegedly hit the drink after Sunday`s 5-0 defeat to Fulham and was still suffering the effects of alcohol at the training ground, which was spotted by his team-mates.
The incident has been passed around the corridors of Molineux with manager Terry Connor initially informing chief executive Jez Moxey, who then told owner Steve Morgan.
It is expected he will be fined two weeks wages, which will cost the defender over £50,000.
‘I can confirm that Roger was involved in a breach of club discipline on Monday, for which he has apologised and accepted his punishment.’ Connor told Wolves Official Website.
He added: ‘The matter has been resolved internally and the club will be making no further comment.’
Roger Johnson said: ‘My conduct and approach to training on Monday was below the high standard the Club rightly needs and demands of me, and what I demand of myself.
‘As a result of that I have apologised to the manager, my team-mates and the club.’
