They are trying to end his career for fark sake
Actually, he is trying to end his career.
How many warnings does a guy need before he gets a clue? Captain of the side, a history of repeated issues, drunk during pre-season training...if he was our captain behaving like that I would be requesting him to stand aside. Of course it begs the question, what side would appoint a guy with historical issues over drunkeness and a refusal to stop doing it, as the captain respresenting all the players and the club?
