Premier League contemplates 'champagne' ban to avoid offending Muslim players
London, May 24(ANI): English Premier League sponsors Barclays plan to drop champagne as the Man of the Match award so that Muslim players aren't offended by it.
Manchester City ace Yaya Toure turned down the traditional prize after his side beat Newcastle three weeks ago.
His City teammate Joleon Lescott tried to hand him a bottle on live TV, to which Toure replied: "I don't drink because I am a Muslim, so you keep it."
A source told The Sun: "The bank is all over the bottle, so Barclays wonder whether it is acceptable to give alcohol, given that so many nationalities are in the league." (ANI)
