Coach and players still at loggerheads
Marcos Falopa has told his players to keep their mouths shut and listen to the management, as the rift between players and management at East Bengal deepens.
Speaking to Goal India, he said: “In my team there are some players who talk too much. They should let their work do the talking. If somebody is injured he has to listen to the trainer and the physio. He cannot go on his own.”
One particular player has come into the firing line during the disagreements, 34-year-old Ryuji Sueoka.
According to Goal India In an interview with the Telegraph an insider blamed the unrest at the club on the Japanese star.
The veteran midfielder has enjoyed a lengthy career with stints in Japan, China and Singapore.
The insider stated that Seueka is acting like a primadonna and is bringing the club down around him: “He (Sueoka) is creating tantrums. If somebody doesn’t give the ball, he creates a scene. Leaves the field in a huff. He seems to see conspiracy in everything.
“No doubt that he is a great player and we need a midfielder of his calibre but if he continues to act like this then he is in for trouble. He is in a new club, a new set up. He cannot expect to get everything on a platter. It takes time to settle down.”
