Former footballer Matt Murray spent ten seasons as a professional at Wolves but has now found himself at the centre of some controversy within the club.
After becoming a registered intermediary with Unique Sports Management, Wolves have adjudged him to overstep the line following attempts to recruit players for his agency at the training ground canteen.
Per The Daily Mail, they’ve told him not to exploit his access after having free reign of the place following his retirement.
It seems a bizarre situation but Wolves supporters have been reacting on Twitter, offering their thoughts on what’s occurred.
One fan made reference to Jorge Mendes, who has a number of their players on his books already, suggesting Murray was stepping on his turf.
Another claimed that harassing players at training may not be the best of ideas. However, a further member of the Molineux faithful couldn’t see what was wrong with it.
The ex-goalkeeper had to cut short his playing days at just the age of 29 following injury and since hanging up his gloves has also made a living through punditry.
The Daily Mail claim that Murray still retains a good relationship with Sporting Director Kevin Thelwell despite the events.
Here’s the best of the reaction.
More discretion needed there MM me thinks

Training grounds might not be the best place to be harassing players.
