Mutu reveals reason for drug use
Updated: 2004-10-22 14:50

Adrian Mutu has claimed that he was tempted into taking drugs by the belief it would improve his sex life.

The 25-year-old Chelsea striker, who admitted using a banned drug but denied it was cocaine, has been linked with a string of stunning models.

Now Mutu, who has failed a random drug test and is to begin daily one-hour counselling sessions today, claims he did not take cocaine but a substance aimed at improving his sexual performance.

Chelsea could suspend his £60,000-a-week wages for the duration of any ban imposed on him by the Football Association, and the player believes he has no future at Stamford Bridge.

The FA and his club have yet to make any comment on the matter, but Mutu is now claiming that his misdemeanour did not involve the use of cocaine.

He said in the Daily Mirror: “I am not hooked on drugs. I categorically deny this.

“The only reason I took what I took was because I wanted to improve my sexual performance.

“It may be funny but it is true. I did not take cocaine. I took something to make me feel good.”
