Cardiff City Boss Denies Gypes Rift

Cardiff City Boss Denies Gypes Rift

Cardiff City manager Dave Jones has moved to quash rumours of a rift between himself and Hungarian Gabor Gyepes, who recently spoke of his frustration and 'useless' efforts to break into the starting XI. Immediately following those comments, Gyepes was not included in the squad to face Sheffield United leaving no specialist cover at centre-half on the bench.

Dave Jones does have a history of alienating certain players with public feuds with Neil Alexander and Darren Purse. Former striker Steve Thompson claimed he and Jones didn't speak towards the end of his Bluebirds career and the rumours surrounding Gyepes seemed plausible.

However, Dave Jones has clarified the situation and told the Western Mail:

"Gabor came to see me the other day about all the stuff that was going around."

"Things like that I had fallen out with him and kicked him out of the team, but the truth of the matter is his wife went into labour Friday morning and he flew out to be with her Saturday morning."

"I talked to him. He knows he has to fight for his place like every player at this club. There`s been no falling out, he`s told me he wants to play, but he`s got to fight for his place it`s as simple as that."




here have been calls for Gyepes to replace captain Mark Hudson following some errors and a distinct lack of pace shown by the former Charlton man. A poor mistake immediately from the restart cost his side a goal against the Blades but in general Hudson is solid and can point to his side's lofty position as proof that the team is functioning.
