Danny Guthrie had a bit of a bust up with Reading manager Brian McDermott a few weeks ago, when he criticized the manager on his Twitter account, after being left out of the side.
Danny Guthrie – having troubles with Reading manager
And it doesn’t seem to have got much better over the last few weeks, and news today that Danny has been banned from Reading’s training ground until further notice, and it seems he’s had yet another argument with Reading manager Brian McDermott.
The 25 year-old Shropshire-born midfielder will likely be fined by the Royals, and this latest altercation will do his first team chances no good at all down south.
It seems like Danny again was not happy when the team was announced to face Fulham on Saturday, and he was on the bench.
Guthrie challenged the manager’s judgement (that’s never a good thing to do in front of other players), and he was told to stay away from the Madjeski Stadium and also from the club’s training ground until further notice.
This is what the Reading manager had to say about Guthrie:
“He was not selected, but he is fit.” “He is part of the squad of 20-odd players and has to get himself into the 18. I just felt it was the right thing to do.”
Guthrie has been told not to attend today’s training session ahead of tomorrow night’s League Cup tie with Arsenal at the Madjeski Stadium.
But it seems there is a conflict that Danny Guthrie has with Brian McDermott, and for the long-term, that’s hardly a good thing.
Alan Pardew had mentioned that Danny got a bit moody when things were not going well for him at Newcastle, but it seems the Newcastle manager handled the player very well, and certainly last season Guthrie put in some good performances for Newcastle.
Danny will now have to buckle down and concentrate on playing football and training hard, and then he should be able to make the starting eleven.
But it also seems that Danny isn’t in the manager’s good books on a number of fronts.
