Jay Bothroyd Claims Mick McCarthy Once Head Butted a Player.. Then Wanted an Apology From the Player

Jay Bothroyd Claims Mick McCarthy Once Head Butted a Player.. Then Wanted an Apology From the Player

Jay Bothroyd claims Mick McCarthy once head butted a player – then wanted the same player to apologise to him in front of the squad.

The English striker currently plays in Japan with Hokkaido Consadole Sapporo, but is known to fans back in the UK after spells at Coventry City, Blackburn, Charlton, Cardiff, Stoke, QPR, Sheffield Wednesday and Wolves, where McCarthy was his manager for two years.

In that two years, Bothroyd scored 13 goals in 60 appearances – eventually being moved on by McCarthy to Cardiff.

But, in that time, he experienced plenty of entertainment under McCarthy, including the time he allegedly head butted a player after a game.

Bothroyd made that claim while responding to a BT Sport highlight reel of McCarthy as a pundit this week, which included a story about taking the striker off after a gesture in direction of the manager.

McCarthy tells his story here:

Bothroyd was quick to respond to it, making the bold claim about McCarthy:

That doesn’t make McCarthy sound too clever.

Hopefully the former Ireland manager will get an opportunity to respond to Bothroyd’s story on BT Sport.
