Warnock unhappy with Camarasa stance
Cardiff manager Neil Warnock has taken aim at Victor Camarasa for his refusal to make himself available to play.
Former Spain Under-21 international Camarasa has only played seven minutes of football since January 19, with the 24-year-old midfielder citing a calf injury that Cardiff insist has cleared for him to play.
But in what some might consider another example of player-power after Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga's refusal to be substituted in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday, Warnock took aim at Camarasa for listening to "Tom, Dick and Harry from abroad".
"I've never come across the situation I've got at the moment," he said. "We're having physios and medical people from abroad telling us what we can do with him when he is our player.
"He obviously listens to his physios, his medical people and Tom, Dick and Harry from abroad. There's nothing we can do about that, I imagine a lot of Premier League players are like that at the minute.
"Some of them (Camarasa's medical team) come over here and he has treatment with them as well as with our lads. It's confusing really. It's very difficult for me and the medical staff when you see someone flying around and yet they aren't fit."
