CheickTiote4Cheick Tiote hasn’t had the perfect build up to our Europa League tie tonight, the United midfielder being arrested after training on Tuesday.

Tiote had his £75,000 Chevy Camaro seized and towed away by police on suspicion of fraud relating to various driving offences, the player left at the side of the road near the training ground at Benton.

Cheick previously had a BMW taken away by the police a couple of years ago, due to insurance issues.

A Northumbria Police spokesman;

“At around 1.30pm on Tuesday, a car was stopped on Benton Park Road, Newcastle, and a 26 year old man was arrested on suspicion of fraud in relation to driving offences”.

As a neutral this is the kind of thing you lap up when it happens to another club’s player and it is a great story for the media.

I have a feeling Cheick Tiote might be a little pumped up for our game tonight and our Ukrainian opponents are about to find out that they might not be too keen on him when he’s angry.
