James McClean Involved In 'Bust-Up' With Stoke Teammates

James McClean Involved In 'Bust-Up' With Stoke Teammates

James McClean was involved in a half-time row with teammates on Wednesday evening as his Stoke side lost 3-0 at home to Wigan.

Stoke were 2-0 down at the break when an argument broke out between McClean and goalkeeper Jack Butland.

According to The Telegraph, Stoke manager Gary Rowett admitted after the game that there had been a 'bust-up' involving McClean, Butland and Ryan Shawcross.


Stoke are without a win in four games since dropping to the Championship. An opening day defeat to Leeds was followed by draws against Brentford and Preston.


"Reputations now mean nothing," said Rowett.

I’ve got to start picking the team on which players deserve to be in, not which players have played in the Premier League for 10 years.

It was weak and pathetic and if you do that you’re going to lose games of football.

When you’re not winning games everybody gets a bit edgy and frustrated. We’ve got to take collective responsibility, it’s no good fighting between ourselves.

McClean, who played the full 90 minutes on Wednesday, joined Stoke during the summer from West Brom.
