Defrel caught drink driving in Genoa


It was a very busy night for Sampdoria’s Grégoire Defrel, who’s on loan from Roma. Secolo XIX reports the Frenchman was involved in a police chase and car crash in Genoa. The ex-Sassuolo man, who was in the car with his girlfriend, was found to be under the influence of alcohol and had his license withdrawn. Both Defrel and his girlfriend were unharmed.
