Sunderland boss David Moyes is “not impressed” after defender Patrick van Aanholt was photographed apparently smoking a shisha pipe.

The 26-year-old Dutchman woke on Friday morning to see the pictures in a national newspaper just days after he was withdrawn from the team to face Tottenham because of a heart scare.

Moyes was less than impressed and has spoken to the player about his off-the-field activities, and while the incident took place during the closed-season, he is not expecting a repeat.


The Scot said: “I don’t expect a player to do that, I don’t expect a player playing for me to do that. I have had a word with him. I am not impressed.

“But I have got to also say it’s a picture that comes out maybe six weeks ago, it was in his off-time, it wasn’t during the season.

“But just let me make sure, in no way do I condone it at all. I think it’s a bad thing for us to show our younger children and for supporters who follow the players. I don’t think it’s a good thing, I don’t think it’s a good thing at all.”
