Ireland’s Stephen Ward downplays unrest at Wolves

Updated: April 10, 2012

Republic of Ireland full-back Stephen Ward has confirmed that there has been unrest in the Wolves’ dressing room and that there has been the ’odd spat.’

The Molineux outfit are sitting rock bottom of the English Premier League and look doomed to drop to the Championship following their sixth defeat in a row on Saturday at Stoke.

Fellow Irish international Stephen Hunt earlier stated that there had been disquiet in the dressing room but Ward moved to downplay the tension saying it is par for the course with a team fighting relegation.

“It’s tough – ask any team in the bottom three, there are going to be a couple of spats here and there,” Ward told English media.

“Of course people are going to be angry and upset – that’s what happens, but I don’t think there’s been too much unrest.”

Although no names have been mentioned; Roger Johnson was seen remonstrating and going head-to-head with goalkeeper Wayne Hennessy recently and Johnson and was subsequently omitted from the side that faced Stoke.
