Things go from bad to worse for Wes Hoolahan at Norwich City after he launched a foul-mouthed attack on his current club on Thursday afternoon. The Ireland international's understood to have been involved in a brief off-air exchange with a television reporter, when jokingly asked if he was going to be leaving, Hoolahan replied, 'I hope so, This is a f****** s*** club.' Hoolahan handed in a transfer request and the club also turned down a bid from Aston Villa who are managed by former Canaries boss Paul Lambert.
Norwich boss Chris Hughton was unaware of the incident when he attended his press conference and said he intends to look into what happened before deciding on any disciplinary action.
Hughton said: " What you are telling me is news to me. It is not something I am aware of and is something I will have to investigate. What I have always been able to do is front the media on something I have knowledge of and can speak of in an appropriate and correct way. "
Hughton added: " We know it is an unsettling time for players in that situation (out of the team), but it won't be the first or the last time you have to deal with situations like that, and it is my responsibility as the manager. There are always going to be procedures you have at the club, whether a player wants to go or whether the club want to keep that particular player. "
