Bray Wanderers chairman Dennis O'Connor was on Soccer Republic last night explaining the club's position after a turbulent few weeks at the Carlisle Ground but he may have made things worse.
Trevor Croly left his post after just two months in charge after players were not paid in time.
League of Ireland director Fran revealed that he held talks with Croly and the Bray board in a bid to resolve the dispute but an agreement could not be reached.
O'Connor said he was 'disappointed' with what had happened over the last week and was hopeful of a resolution in the next few days but a certain comment about his plans for the future did not go down well with Wanderer's players.
He said: We have got to get the right management and the right players in. This is no reflection on the current players. We're going to have to get some strong players in and use that to, my ambition this season is to finish in the top half of the league but next year go much higher and be ready for it."
The players were not happy that their strength had been called into question.
