Bohemians press release attributes star player’s absence to being “gargled”

Danny Mandroiu clarifies he was injured, not drunk.


League of Ireland side Bohemians declared Danny Mandroiu a doubt due to being “gargled” in their press release before Friday’s match against Dundalk.

The word is an Irish slang term for ‘drunk’ and drew an angry reaction from the player on social media, with the club later apologising and saying it was a joke.

Regarding the team news that @bfcdublin sent out earlier, what was said was completely untrue, I am out injured at the moment. Im sure you will hear this from the club too eventually but I just wanted to clear that up for myself and my reputation.

In his tweet, Mandroiu clarified that he is in fact injured and he received a supportive reply from Brighton and Hove Albion forward Aaron Connolly.

Bohs managed to win 2-1 without him at Dalymount Park, leaving them 2nd in the top flight table and their opponents 3rd.
