On Saturday night after our win against Southampton I went out with my family and friends for dinner. After our dinner we all wanted a night swim in my gym so we changed to shorts and brought towels down.

As we arrived at the gym my key fob changed the colour from red (locked) to green (open) but the door remained closed.

We thought the door was stuck so we tried to open it and it caused some damage.

I apologise for any inconvenience for my neighbours and I have paid in full. We had no part in damaging anything else in the building.

The matter is closed with the police, and my focus is on tonight’s match.
