It’s nice to see that the new boss doesn’t take any shenanigans from any of the players. The Mirror is reporting that Morgan Amalfitano has banished from the first team to train with the kids, after turning up late to a team meeting. To quote the Moirror, “Amalfitano is understood to have “given the manager attitude” when he took exception to being confronted about his absence in front of his teammates.” It is understood that he “had a list of his misdemeanours read to him before he was sent packing by Bilic after his latest breach of discipline. And the Croatian’s no-nonsense approach has been noted by the rest the squad.”
Well, good for him (Bilic, that is). It looks like he has a touch of the Alex Ferguson about him, which should do the team no harm at all.
The Mirror went on, “Bilic has also impressed his players with his preparations for Sunday’s Premier League opener at Arsenal and the style of football he wants to implement.”
