EVERTON midfielder Jean-Philippe Gbamin has been fined £25,000 and banned from the roads after a 5am drink-drive smash.
A breath test revealed he had 52mg of alcohol in 100ml of breath.
The legal limit is 35mg.
Gbamin, from the Ivory Coast, who earns £100,000 a month, admitted drink-driving at Manchester magistrates’ court and got a 14-month driving ban and fine.
JP Susanne O’Connell told him: “You are very fortunate no serious injuries were caused.
He said: “I am sorry.”
