Report: Samp to punish Defrel

Sampdoria will reportedly fine Gregoire Defrel and send the striker back to Roma this summer after he was caught drink-driving.

Defrel was found not to have been involved in a police chase on Sunday night, but Il Secolo XIX writes the Roma loanee still gave a ‘positive alcohol test’.

Consequently, the newspaper expects the Frenchman to be handed a ‘heavy’ fine, while he ‘risks’ not being kept on permanently by Samp.

The 27-year-old played six minutes of the Blucerchiati’s 2-1 defeat to Atalanta on Sunday, which extended his run without a Serie A goal to 14 games.
