Arsenal Loan Star Dropped at Ipswich After Mum Leaves Mick McCarthy Angry Voicemail

Arsenal Loan Star Dropped at Ipswich After Mum Leaves Mick McCarthy Angry Voicemail

Footballers get dropped from teams for all kinds of reasons, but because of an angry voicemail from their mother has to be one of the oddest.

That’s exactly what happened to Ainsley Maitland-Niles, the Arsenal loanee currently with Ipswich Town in The Championship.

The winger seemed to be doing reasonably well under the tutelage of an experienced manager like Mick McCarthy, but things have taken a bizarre turn for the worse.

Jules Niles, the 18-year-old’s rather opinionated mother, has allegedly left McCarthy an abusive message on his mobile phone after he stopped his player from taking part in an England kit launch recently so that he could prepare for a crucial match.

According to the East Anglian Times, McCarthy was so shocked by the message that he asked his coaching staff to listen to ensure ‘he wasn’t going mad’.

And it’s not the first time Jules has made her presence felt.

Last season, Maitland-Niles’ mother interrupted an Arsenal U21 match after he picked up a knock. She threatened to drag him off the pitch, before screaming at Gunners chief negotiator Dick Law and was arrested on suspicion of assaulting two individuals on the sidelines.

What do you think of the incident?
