Given that the demon drink has scuppered the careers of so many British talents, Off The Post could forgive itself a little smirk as Brazil´s most recent golden generation are one-by-one claimed by the demons of fast-food and a fast lifestyle.

The supersized striker has been joking about his lack of a club after turning up to train with the Bolivian national team. He joked: “I’m the new signing of the Bolivian national team.” That is like Wayne Rooney going to train with Wales if he gets too fat. I think I would stick to the nightclubs!
