Garra punished for Drink-driving
Levski Sofia's top scorer, French-born Malian player Garra Dembele, was handed an eight-month suspended sentence for drink-driving, Sofia's city court said Wednesday.
Dembele was handed the suspended sentence with a three-year probation period after being caught drink-driving in December and presenting police with a forged driving licence.
The 24-year-old Dembele, who has scored 31 goals in 40 appearances for Levski this season and tops the Bulgarian league scoring charts with 21 goals, had eyed a move from Levski before the close of the January transfer window.
But the court case against him means he will, at least temporarily, remain at the Bulgarian club.
