Leon Best i Stephen Ireland su se izvinili za svoje ponašanje ispred noćnog kluba prošlog petka...Sa njima je bio i mladi Stephen Folan.

"Although we had both been ruled out of the game at Stoke, and didn't travel with the team, we realise that going out to a bar was inappropriate ahead of Saturday's game and we fully regret doing so.

"We were asked to have our photograph taken and we removed our shirts as a tongue-in-cheek joke between friends, but of course the resulting coverage in the press suggests a far different night out.

"Whilst our actions were wrong, neither of us had consumed alcohol and we were out for only a very short period of time. However, with the team having an important game at Stoke the following day, we should never have put ourselves or the club in that position.
