Dean Saunders, the ex Liverpool FC Striker, has been jailed today for 10 weeks for failing to be breathalysed, after being pulled over on suspicion of Drink Driving.
Saunders worked as a coach at Newcastle United, under Graeme Souness and has also managed Wrexham and Wolves as well as being capped 75 times for Wales.
Saunders was stopped by Police on suspicion of drink driving in Boughton, Chester on May 10th this year, but pleaded guilty by letter, on Tuesday, but appeared in Court Today (28th August).
Initially denying both charges at an earlier hearing, he was also banned from driving for 30 months. Saunders is currently working for BT Sport, so could it affect his job too?
The jailing, is a sad hiccup in what has been a good and solid career, as a player, and a steady, if unspectacular managerial career.
