Boss threatens to offload any disruptive influence in his dressing room
Steve Davis has told the club’s official web-site that he will aim to offload any of his players’ who represent a disruptive influence in the Crewe dressing room. Following the 5-0 defeat by Swindon Town on Saturday, the Alex boss has asked for unity both inside and out of the club and he is adamant that anyone spreading negativity inside the camp will be moved on.
Davis has spent the summer improving his squad numbers to increase competition and he says that he will have to get the balance right to make sure that everyone is pulling in the right direction. The boss has revealed that he will be calling the group together to see if there is any underling problem before deciding on the possible futures of some.
Steve told crewealex.net: “After what happened on Saturday (at Swindon) it will all about how the players respond and how they conduct themselves going forward. I don’t want them moping about and spreading negativity inside the camp.
“With young footballers nowadays there seem to be more of a blame culture. If they have suffered a heavy defeat or not played well then they are quicker to point the finger of blame and we need to stay together.
“We are all in it together and I have always build success on having that positivity and a united dressing room. That is the only way you can have success and if that momentum or machine is stuttering for whatever reason then we will fish it out and sort it out.
“There can be reasons why a player is not playing as well as they he can and that be something happening off the pitch, as much as on it. We will be speaking to the group as a collective to find out if there is anything else.
He added: “I can’t have a disruptive influence to the group and it will be my job to get to the bottom of it. If players are not in the team then I want them to be professional. I was when I was out of a team as a player and they have to deal with it.”
