Stoke City reported to have sacked Saido Berahino following drink driving conviction

Saido Berahino has reportedly been sacked by Stoke City following a drink driving conviction after he was caught three times over the limit

Reuben Pinder

He scored five goals in 56 appearances for the Potters

Stoke City have told Saido Berahino they are cancelling his contract, according to a report from the Mail

The decision comes after the striker was fined £75,000 and banned from driving for 30 months after being caught almost three times over the legal alcohol limit in his Range Rover back in February.

He is reportedly challenging the club’s decision to sack him.

Berahino moved to Stoke in 2017 after impressing for West Brom, but has only scored five goals in 56 appearances for the Potters while dealing with personal issues off the field.

He last played for Stoke in February, nine days before the driving offence was committed.
