Todd Carney Is Entitled To Have A Few Drinks, Says Matty Johns
Matty Johns says Todd Carney is entitled to have a few drinks after the Sharks player went on Channel Ten's 'The Game Plan' to talk about his alcohol issues.
"Todd Carney is entitled to a few drinks if Todd Carney behaves himself," Matty said on Triple M Sydney adding "he's no different to any person in society."
"If you come out and say you're not going to drink people make it their personal mission to catch you out and that's what happened with Todd," Matty told Triple M Sydney.
Matty was reacting to Todd's comments on Channel Ten's footy show, 'The Game Plan' where he said alcohol has "played a big part of my career."
"It's been a downfall in a lot of it and I still do drink now, probably a little bit more responsibly than I used to do," Carney said on The Game Plan.
Carney attributed his new outlook on alcohol to Sharks coach Shane Flanagan.
"Every player is treated the same and if we win we go out as a group, go back to the Leagues club and if we loose he tells what we can and can't do," Carney said on Channel Ten.
