Tardelli and Kelly have training ground argument

Updated: October 15, 2012

Speculation in the media that Giovanni Trappatoni has “lost the players” was reinforced this morning when news emerged of a bust up in the Irish camp.

Stephen Kelly is reported to have had a training ground altercation with assistant manager Marco Tardelli and had to be coaxed into boarding yesterday’s flight to the Faroe Islands.

Kelly has captained Ireland during the Trappatoni regime but has recently spoke of his frustration in not getting any game time during the Euros last summer and was once again overlooked in Friday’s record defeat to Germany in favour of Toronto F.C.’s Darren O’Dea.
