Saido Berahino breaks his silence with this eight word message
Former West Bromwich Albion striker Saido Berahino has posted a cryptic social media message as he awaits trial for drink-driving.
Berahino, 25, hasn’t played for his current side Stoke City since the start of February.
The Burundi international was arrested on February 18, after being pulled over in London’s West End.
Berahino has claimed that he was attempting to flee armed robbers and his case will be heard next month.
As he was entering Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court he was also filmed launching an expletive ridden blast on reporters.
He has posted on Twitter a message reading: “Sometimes that hurt changes you for the better.”
His time in the Potteries has been a deeply disappointing one for the former Albion man. He has recently enjoyed some more positive times on the pitch, when he helped his homeland Burundi qualify for the African Cup of Nations for the first time in their history.
Despite this, current Potters boss Nathan Jones has failed to utilise the forward at all in recent months, with Berahino failing to even make the bench since February.

Speaking after his arrest, Jones said: “We want good human beings here, not just good footballers and talented individuals but good people, to represent Stoke City.
“Anyone who breaches those disciplines we will do everything we can to make sure the punishment fits what has happened.
“We are trying to create an environment for good human beings and elite athletes here.”
