Training Ground Bust-Up At Tranmere Rovers!
Sky Sports News have reported there has been a training ground bust-up involving quite a high number of players.
The rumour is that experienced, fairly new signing Andy Mangan has gone in two-footed on of the youngsters in a mini-match. This led to the senior staff and players to jump on the situation quickly as tempers were rising." I thought Andy had more professionalism than this to be honest, he hasn't been playing for a few weeks I can understand his problems, but to dive in on one of our youngsters and potentially give him a serious injury is way out of order" John Aldridge, the Tranmere Manager.
As Aldridge said, Mangan hasn't played for the club for a weeks here at SSN we are guessing this is because of the current form of Jaanai Gordon and Harry Cardwell. Gordon though, has just suffered a shoulder injury which could keep him out for at least two months so Mangan could have been in with a return if he just kept his cool.
" This was a statement of intent, this is football youngster or not the lad should be able to take what comes to him. I shall not be apologising to him and I expect to be in the team for the upcoming game up front!" Andy Mangan there, clearly showing no remorse over what has just happened.
Tranmere, high flying in the league with a hefty FA Cup 4th Qualifying Round tie against Altrincham coming up need to sort this out with Mangan and the rest of the squad to make sure that is doesn't escalate with any of the other players and start to distract them.
Whatever happens, I'm sure we will find out soon enough here at SSN
