Peterborough United chairman Darragh MacAnthony has described the club’s star striker Jason Cummings as ‘daft’ after video emerged over the weekend apparently showing the 23 year-old causing damage to his own flat.
But MacAnthony insists the matter has already been dealt with in-house and the club will not be taking any further action against a forward who is on loan for the season from Championship side Nottingham Forest.
The video shows Cummings hurling furniture, including a widescreen television, around his apartment. He appears to smash a window. It’s not known whether Cummings is living in Peterborough.
MacAnthony used his social media account to say: “Been dealt with in-house & yes he’s made a daft mistake, but let’s calm down. He will learn quickly from moments of stupidity.
“We have a young squad who have an edge to them and at times can be daft. Just have to be careful with level of daftness.”
MacAnthony revealed Cummings had spent yesterday with manager Steve Evans at a local sports event.
Cummings was substituted during a 3-2 Posh win at Southend on Saturday. He has scored six goals in eight appearances for Posh and won League One’s player-of-the-month award for August.
