Not that he had a chip on his shoulder but I didn’t like his attitude at times and had a couple of words with him. I was thinking of letting him go.

“It’s hard when you’re injured to train like they do but I’ve been really impressed with Marcus, he’s really trained hard and he’s looking forward to trying to get in that squad again.”
