Premier League player remains banned from training ground after shock incident

A member of Wolves’ first team will remain in exile, the manager Gary O’Neil has confirmed, following an incident at the club’s Compton Park training ground.

Following his exclusion from Wolves’ matchday roster for their Saturday encounter against Arsenal, Jonny Otto’s future at Molineux is now in jeopardy.

Under Nuno Espirito Santo, Otto—who transferred from Atletico Madrid to the Premier League team in 2018—was a consistent player.

But recently, the 29-year-old has had trouble getting into the starting lineup. He has actually only played in one Premier League game for Wolves this season, and that was in September when he entered as a late substitute during their victory over Manchester City.

Now, it appears Otto will continue to miss out after manager Gary O’Neil confirmed that the Spanish defender will be unavailable for upcoming training sessions or matches.

Speaking ahead of Tuesday’s clash against Burnley, O’Neil said: “I’m not going into the actual incident too much. We’re working hard to shift the club in a certain direction and it is important that we continue to do so.

“So the Jonny incident has been dealt with and will continue to be dealt with by the club as it should be.

“Jonny won’t be in the squad tomorrow. There was a training ground incident last week that’s being dealt with by the club. If or when he’s back available, we’ll let everybody know about it.

“At this moment in time, he won’t be available for the coming games.”

O’Neil was also asked if training ground incidents are healthy for a team’s fight and spirit. “They can be healthy but those ones generally aren’t dealt with,” he added. “Anything beyond that is dealt with by myself and the club.

“We’re working hard to shift the club in a certain direction. The Jonny incident has been dealt with and will continue to do so. My 100% focus is on Burnley.”

Wolves currently sit 13th in the Premier League table ahead of Tuesday night’s game against Burnley, who continue to linger in the relegation zone after picking up just two wins from a possible 14.
