In reaction to media reports that appeared alleging that Chelsea players attending Salomon Kalou's birthday party spent £120,000 on drinks, the club and the players totally denied the facts and implications of these reports.
None of the Chelsea players spent these extravagant sums.
Whilst many players attended their team-mate's party, it was in fact hosted and generously paid for by friends of Salomon and even then the sums involved were greatly exaggerated.
