Following the various newspaper reports speculating on the club self imploding, Joe Kinnear has assured fans that neither of the two players involved will face any further action, branding it just one of those things that happens on the training pitch. Kinnear said:

‘It was just handbags and it has been blown out of all proportion. I can’t stop players being passionate, and wouldn’t want to. I won’t be taking any action. It was a very intense, excellent training session, as we always have at the club. It was a fiery session. There was a late challenge and a reaction to it. The players were working to the max – it was as simple as that.’
