Chelsea striker labels nightclubs a “toxic cocktail”

Chelsea striker Demba Ba has revealed that he no longer visits nightclubs - and has branded them a "toxic cocktail".

The 28-year-old is a practising muslim and, because of religious reasons, feels it's in his best interest to steer clear of London's top night spots.

“My behaviour in the past wasn’t too bad. But let’s say it was not in keeping with the Islamic faith’s demands," Ba confessed in an interview with The Sun. “Nightclubs, for example. People tell me it’s not a big deal if I go to them — but I don’t do it any more.

“That is because you’ll find alcohol, loud music and near-naked girls inside. It is a toxic cocktail."

Ba went on to reveal that he had to leave a nightclub minutes after walking into one while on a night out with his Newcastle team-mates.

“When I was at Newcastle my team-mates wanted to take me out the night after our last game of the season," the Senegal international, who joined Chelsea from the Magpies in January, continued.

“I went into a nightclub, turned my head left and right, looked at my brothers and told them: ‘I’m out of here — I can’t cope with this’."

Ba has only played a peripheral role at Stamford Bridge, but has the utmost confidence that he will succeed wherever he is playing.

“I have never doubted that I would succeed from the moment I first began playing football," he added. “Sometimes people have a Plan A and a Plan B. But, as far as I’m concerned, I have just had a Plan A.”
