Nyarko points finger at Knox
Alex Nyarko - Everton midfielder
Alex Nyarko's claims will not help his position
Everton's unsettled midfielder Alex Nyarko believes assistant manager Archie Knox's constant run-ins with players are undermining the club.

The Ghanaian international has maintained his desire to quit the club after being the victim of a verbal assault by an irate fan at Arsenal earlier this month.

Despite manager Walter Smith's attempts to keep him, it seems certain that Nyarko will leave Goodison Park this summer, especially after his recent revelations.

Nyarko said Knox came to blows with midfielder Stephen Hughes during a game against Bradford and that Knox later insulted him.

"Archie was fighting with Stephen Hughes and the other players separated them," the midfielder told The Mirror newspaper.

"It was not the first time. I couldn't understand this attitude. We have to go and win a game, I can't cope with this.

"Archie was fighting with so many players in the room. In the end I could not be in the same room as him."
