If proof was ever needed that we are indeed a big club, then here it is: City have joined the ranks of Newcastle and Chelsea in having an international player go absent without leave. Jamaican defender Ian Goodison has failed to return to Hull after helping the Reggae Boyz defeat St.Vincent in a World Cup qualifier on Wednesday, and club officials are at a loss as to his whereabouts!
Goodison was due back yesterday along with compatriot and housemate Theo Whitmore, both players were booked on the same flight back to England but only Whitmore caught that flight, he attended training yesterday and is fit and well for City’s trip to Leyton Orient. Manager Brian Little is less than pleased with events and said ”If there isn’t a good reason, Ian will be strongly disciplined. He’s missed two games anyway. It’s not good enough, not when we pay his wages. I’m very unhappy”.
