We’re playing: St Pat’s team changes its mind
St Patrick Athletic’s big Euro night is back on.
St Pat’s players were refusing to play in the glamour game of their season ... in a row over money.
The team told management that they would not tog out for tonight's home second leg Europa league game against Karpaty Lviv amid a continuing row with the club over bonuses.
The players released a statement at lunchtime - through the Professional Footballers' Association of Ireland (PFAI) - in which they expressed regret that they "would not be participating in the fixture this evening".
"This is a unanimous decision of all the players and has not been reached lightly," the statement said.
The row over unpaid bonuses was later resolved.
