The reasons for Oldham Athletic jettisoning Albert Rusnak back to Manchester City have been revealed.

The Manchester Evening News says Rusnak returned to his parent club after refusing to play for Oldham Athletic's reserve team whilst on loan with the Latics.

A source close to City revealed Rusnak had reacted angrily at being asked to play for Oldham's second string against Port Vale on Tuesday.

On his return to the Etihad, it is believed City's head of youth Patrick Vieira told the youngster he needed to go back to Oldham and apologise for his actions.
