Wilson olive branch to Trap

IRELAND outcast Marc Wilson says he's willing to seek peace talks with Giovanni Trapattoni to try and rescue his dream of playing at the Euro 2012 finals.

Only last Friday Trapattoni appeared to close the door on Antrim-born Wilson, saying “he can go, if he wishes to go” when asked about Wilson opting to play for Northern Ireland.

Trap also suggested that Wilson, who has made 19 Premier League appearances for Stoke this season, had been axed from the squad for disciplinary reasons.

But Wilson says he's bemused by Trap's comments and will do all he can to clear the air with Trapattoni and give himself a chance of making the squad for Poland/Ukraine.

“If I need to make an approach to the manager and try to clear this up then I will do that,” Wilson told the Herald.

“I'd be happy to speak to him to get this sorted but I have no idea what I am supposed to have done.

“If I had done something bad then I'd hold my hand up and admit it, but I am in the dark over all this.”
