Jamaica midfielder Jason Euell has sensationally lifted the lid on the off-the-field events that overshadowed Jamaica`s friendly matches with Ghana and England, which culminated with Hornet`s hitman Marlon King walking out of the Reggae Boyz squad.
"On the evening of the England-Hungary game, the players were invited to Old Trafford to take in the atmosphere," King told the News of the World. "Having played there before, I decided to go out in Manchester with Marlon and Jamal Campbell-Ryce.
"We returned at 2am to discover our rooms had been locked and were informed that had been ordered FA president Crenston Boxhill. Apparently we had broken a curfew but we didn`t know it existed," said the Charlton midfielder. "There was a team meeting at 11.30pm and the officials decided on a lock-out to gauge our return.
"Marlon then packed his bags and left, totally disillusioned by the events of the whole week. The Jamaican FA later said that he`d been sent home but he left of his own accord," reasoned Euell.
The 29-year-old also criticised Jamaica`s build-up the two games and claims that the squad could not train because the went to Vicarage Road instead of London Colney, when they finally got to London Colney it was 9pm and too dark to train. Euell also said that the team got to Leicester`s Walker`s 30 minutes before kick-off for their match against Ghana.
Euell and Jamal Campbell-Ryce were fined 50% of their match fees by the Jamaican FA.
