After the allegations in the newspapers about John Carew breaking club curfew prior to the Ajax match, O’Neill has now commented.

Speaking on the official site, and no doubt taking advantage of Carew’s impressive performance today, our manager said simply:

‘He has paid the penalty and the incident is forgotten. He has already said it won’t happen again. I tend to believe him.

‘He said there were a lot of mitigating circumstances and I tend to share that view too.

‘He will be reprimanded and fined and I’m sure it won’t happen again.’
