And Fonte, speaking to a tabloid newspaper called the 68-year-old "ignorant" in response to his ill-judged comments.

"I'm not going to say anything," - said Fonte, who is currently sidelined through injury. "It's not going to change who I am. It's not going to change what I do.

"I'm going to keep being the good professional that I am. I am going to keep working hard to try and help my team-mates and the manager. What has been said has no effect on me or who I am."

The other player accused of not being up to scratch, Scottish international Snodgrass hit back at Sullivan on Friday night, when he sarcastically thanked Sullivan for his support via social media.
