Naijauto gathered that the police were called and two officers escorted the England star to an ATM where he withdrew some cash to pay the taxi driver.

Ross was filmed as he was speaking to Liverpool police officers on Sunday, around 11 pm and a spectator made fun: “Chelsea player can't pay for a taxi!"

The 26-year-old earns £100,000 weekly. That’s ₦44.4 million.


The Chelsea star earns ₦44.4 million weekly and can definitely pay for a taxi!

An eyewitness narrated what transpired between Ross and the taxi driver.

He said,

It looked like Barkley had spilled his chips on the floor in the back of the cab.

He was refusing to pick them up and then refusing to pay. He appeared to be very drunk and was unsteady on his feet.'

Barkley said 'I have no cash, I'm not paying' before police were called

When the police officers arrived at the scene, they took him to go get the cash, which was handed to the taxi driver.

Onlookers weren't done with the Chelsea star as one taunted him saying,

Look at the mess on the floor that's a disgrace
