West Brom’s Bednar apologises for after being caught buying drugs

West Brom’s Roman Bednar has apologised after being caught buying drugs.

The Czech Republic striker was photographed after the Baggies win over Wigan last week and the story came to the fore just hours before the club was relegated after losing to Liverpool on Sunday.

He has since apologised for what is a potentially serious situation.

"I am sorry and deeply regretful for the stories that have emerged in the press today and the embarrassment and negative publicity it has brought to the directors, players and staff of West Bromwich Albion football club and all the supporters," he said in a statement to Sport Invest.

“My biggest disappointment today is of the team's relegation to the Championship and I sincerely hope to have the opportunity to help the club regain promotion next season."

According to Bednar’s agent, David Travnicek, there will be meetings with the club to discuss his future.

"I have already met with Roman and we discussed the situation, which is very serious,” Travnicek said.

"On Monday or Tuesday I will be discussing his future with the club's representatives."
