Wolves boss Mick McCarthy confirms dressing room row (Getty)
Wolves boss Mick McCarthy has admitted to a heated exchange with captain Gary Breen following the 2-2 draw with Southampton at Molineux.

Wolves conceded a 94th minute equaliser and McCarthy has confirmed there was an incident involving Breen in the dressing room afterwards.

McCarthy said: "Emotions were running high and heated words were exchanged.

"We have since met for a clear-the-air talk and that's the end of it. We move on to the next game."

Breen was seen storming out of the dressing room and away from Molineux within 15 minutes of the final whistle.

We are both passionate and competitive people

Mick McCarthy

Rumours were circulating that he and McCarthy had to be separated immediately after the game, although the Wolves boss insists there was no physical confrontation.

McCarthy said: "It was a dressing room argument and there were too many people around for the situation to go beyond a bit of shouting. No punches were exchanged.

"Breeny and I have worked together for a long time and have a lot of respect for each other.

"We are both passionate and competitive people who desperately want to win games. So these things happen."
