Tom Cairney has taken to social media to blast his teammates saying “I wish our strikers could shoot” after his windscreen was smashed.
Cairney’s outrage is justified as this is actually the second time his car’s windscreen has been smashed during Fulham’s training sessions.
The 32-year-old shared his disgust on Instagram and posted some pictures of the damages after a shot struck his car on Thursday.
Tom Cairney initially blamed his teammate Carlos Vinicius and said: “How’s that possible again 😭.”
Carlos Vinicius replied immediately stating that Rodrigo Muniz was the culprit and added: “Apologies @carlosvinicius95 it was the other Brazilian @rodrigomuniz019 😂.”
Cairney, who is a former Blackburn Rovers player, experienced that same damage to his car one year ago after a wayward strike from Aleksandar Mitrovic.
Mitrovic cared less about Tom Cairney or his feelings as he went ahead to pose for a selfie in front of the smashed window before sending it to the Fulham’s group chat.
Mitrovic revealed afterwards that: “It’s true I broke Tom’s window but it was not on purpose. His car was behind the goal when we were finishing in training.”
“I mishit a shot, the ball went over the fence and it was so hot that day and it hit the windscreen and broke it.”
Mitrovic, 28, is no longer with Tom Cairney nor the team when the second incident occurred for the second time this week.
That Mitrovic incident left manager Marco Silva with a sour taste and the manager revealed that: “He forced everything to leave the club, he wanted to leave the club.”
“If you ask me if it is normal? No. If you ask me if football players should behave in this way? No. That is the easy answer.”
