Nigerian footballer and former Premier League midfielder Dickson Etuhu has been quizzed by the police after allegedly being involved in a fight outside a nightclub in Sweden last Sunday. 33-year-old Etuhu, who left Blackburn Rovers for Swedish side AIK earlier this year, responded to the reports by releasing an official statement via AIK’s website saying: ‘I want to confirm that I am the AIK player that was involved in the incident that has been reported in the media during the last two days.
“I’m coming forward because I don’t want any more speculation surrounding my team-mates about who was involved and I have always stood up for my actions. I have talked to my club and the police about what in my opinion happened on Sunday night, and I will today file a report to the police about what I believe caused the incident and the way the security staff acted. I have no further comments since it is now an ongoing police investigation.”
