Berahino sorry for 'poor judgment'

Saido Berahino, the West Bromich Albion striker, has been disciplined by his club after footage came to light showing him inhaling nitrous oxide in his car after a defeat by Manchester United last month.

Breathing in the gas is not illegal but can pose serious health risks. The 20-year-old has apologised for failing to set "the right example" but has been involved in controversy already this season, having been involved in a dressing-room row with team-mate James Morrison. The Scot is understood to have hit Berahino during the bust up.

"[Inhaling nitrous oxide] was very poor judgment on my part," he said. "I won't be doing it again."
