I have a player who went out drinking late and was absent
for the next days match. Not only that he took a young player out with him.
As it was a second offence I fined him a weeks wages and the younger player
was warned as it was his first offence.
The young player accepted the warning and I have forgiven him.
The older player felt his fine was unjust and I told him assertively that I was right and to get on
with playing football. He was still very angry.
Because of his attitude I changed his status to not needed and transfer listed him against the advice of my assistant.
I also put him in the under 18 squad even though he is well over 18.
I have been unsuccessful in selling him even on a free.
I have tried mutual termination, no go.
I tried to release him on a free but the board blocked it as they can't afford to pay out his contract.
I asked him to find himself a club, he wont.
I am not saying this is a bug, far from it.
I am just interested how you think this will play out, I will not have my authority challenged.
I will not break promises, but I wont be pushed around.
