Notts County's players are unsure of what role Sven Goran Eriksson has at the club.
Veteran keeper Russell Hoult, once of West Brom, said: "We don't know what Sven does. We've not seen him. He didn't come to training on Friday, although we met him on Thursday.
"He just told us that Ian McParland is the manager, he picks the team.
"We think he's just here to bring players in, if and when they are needed. And that's about it."
