Cork City midfielder George O'Callaghan is a doubt for Wednesday's Champions League qualifying round first leg tie at home to Apollon Limassol (1930 BST).
Damien Richardson led his side to the Eircom League title
The 26-year-old has not trained after been given time off by manager Damien Richardson for personal reasons.
"George could still be involved and I'll not be making a decision on that yet. If he wants to play, I will want to speak to him," said Richardson.
O'Callaghan is reported to have had a disagreement with the Cork manager.
He claims he is being punished after a bust-up when the manager criticised him for getting sent-off in a match against Bohemians.
There is also speculation that the player is set to leave the club although Richardson says "there is no way that George is going to play for any other Eircom League club".
