With no matches in the Premier League last weekend, Aston Villa manager Gerard Houllier thought it would be the perfect week to take the team for a ‘morale-boosting’ trip, down to a hotel and spa getaway in Leicestershire on Wednesday night.
The team enjoyed the paintballing exercise as well as the dinner that came later that night but things got a little out of hand when two unnamed players squared up in a heated exchange.
“The club is aware that there has been an incident,” a Villa spokesman said. “We have launched an investigation in line with our internal disciplinary procedures.”
Its believed the squad members had had a few drinks on-board and started having a go at each other but no punches were thrown, just “two players who were pissed up had a frank exchange of view” according to a source quoted to the Guardian.
Absolutely marvelous. That’s just what we need. Another bloody fight. We’ve had a good few over the past week or so but Macclesfield vs Wycombe SURELY takes the cake. No doubt.
Oh and I know who the perpetrators for the Villains were: Mr Richard Dunne and James Collins. Obviously having an argument over who was the better player.
