Australian captain Lucas Neill has rejected the mutiny allegations that has been thrown at him. The allegations of the player revolt emerged in well-known Australian football commentator Les Murray’s new book The World Game: The story of how football went global.
Murray claimed Neill was unimpressed with Verbeek’s tactics for the Germany game and sent the Dutch boss away from the changing rooms before instructing his team-mates to disobey the orders.
However, Neill, currently on holiday in the United States, hit back at the allegations when he spoke to Fox Sports.
“I was absolutely shocked by this when I first heard it, and now I’m angry,” said Neill.
