Sunderland's Stephane Sessegnon charged with drink-driving

Sunderland forward Stephane Sessegnon is charged with drink-driving after being stopped by Northumbria Police last night.

Sunderland forward Stephane Sessegnon has been charged with drink-driving, Northumbria Police have confirmed.

The 29-year-old was stopped by police while his team secured a 4-2 victory over MK Dons in the League Cup second round last night.

The Benin-born forward has been charged today and will appear at Newcastle Magistrates' Court to answer the charge on October 4.

Black Cats manager Paolo Di Canio has taken a tough stance on his players since he arrived at the Stadium of Light towards the end of last season.

It remains to be seen whether the Italian will take any disciplinary action against Sessegnon, but the former Swindon Town boss has snubbed Phil Bardsley from the club following a couple of incidents, which began with the defender being photographed in a casino.
