- Dean Saunders to spend 10 weeks in jail.
Dean Saunders, a former Liverpool striker, has been sentenced to 10 weeks in jail.
Mirror UK reports that Saunders was sentenced on Wednesday at Chester Magistrates’ Court after he pleaded guilty to failing to comply with a roadside breath test and failing to provide a breath sample for analysis.
The former Liverpool striker, who is a regular football TV and radio pundit, was stopped on suspicion of drink driving by police in Boughton, Chester, on May 10.
It was learned that the Welshman was also banned from driving for 30 months.
The 55-year-old striker played for Aston Villa and Derby County, Galatasaray, Benfica, Bradford City, Sheffield United, and Nottingham Forest before he retired in 2001.
After his retirement in 2001, Saunders went on to coach Chesterfield in 2015 for six months.
