Cardiff City supervisor Neil Warnock has rubbished any discuss of Harry Arter’s dedication on the coaching pitch.
Arter was concerned in a bust-up with Roy Keane when on Republic of Ireland obligation in May, with the assistant supervisor questioning his perspective after he was unable to coach as a result of harm. The argument has seen the player step away from the worldwide fold for the rapid future.
Neil Warnock has now been talking on talkSPORT, praising the midfielder’s work ethic in coaching:
He’s a gem of a lad for a supervisor to have. He’s just so enthusiastic. Every day in coaching I’ve to calm him down.
In equity to Eddie [Howe] he did inform me his greatest drawback is getting booked… and he’s had three bookings in three games!
And that’s as a result of that’s how he performs, and he trains the identical.
I’ve no drawback with him in any respect. We had a chat about this example, however not more than what a supervisor and a player would do in the identical circumstances.
On mortgage from Bournemouth for the season, Arter has adjusted to life in Wales nicely. In reality he has already endeared himself to Cardiff followers together with his combative fashion.
This testimony from his membership supervisor might serve to heap even additional criticism on to Keane, who has been closely scrutinised on account of the incident between the pair.
The former Sunderland boss has a historical past of altercations with players and managers, with Liam Lawrence recently outlining an analogous argument he had with the Cork man throughout their time at Sunderland that resulted within the player’s departure from the membership.
The highlight has now firmly been positioned on his function inside the Irish arrange, with many questioning the worth of an assistant supervisor who appears to be actively turning players away from the squad.
The proven fact that few others have had comparable issues with Arter will doubtless solely weaken his place.
