Temp Head

GIOVANNI Trapattoni has pulled down the shutters on all talk about Kevin Foley or anyone else outside his current squad of 23 in Montecatini.

"I will not talk about this again. I will not talk about anyone other than the 23 players in my squad until after the friendly game with Hungary in Budapest," he said with feeling.

Stung to anger by persistent questioning about the manner in which Kevin Foley was dropped from the squad, Trapattoni gave the entire media pack a piece of his mind.

"It's about responsibility! Responsibility! I have to pick one player or the other. That is responsibility, for the team and for the country. If there is another injury what will you say then? What words?

"I don't want to speak about this anymore. That is finished. Do you want to speak about what happened now on the training pitch? What happened now is I saw the team is very well, very fast."
