Rodallega slams Fulham boss Meulensteen over substitution

Fulham striker Hugo Rodallega has claimed that head coach Rene Meulensteen showed him a lack of respect by taking him off against Sheffield United. Rodallega cannot understand why he was substituted when other forwards at Fulham tend to be given a whole match, and has criticised his boss.

"I have no relationship with the new manager and I think he has been disrespectful to me," Rodallega told Colombian TV show Kick Off.

"He always keeps his forwards on whether or not they are playing well, so I don't know why he has done this to me. It broke my heart.

"I've never gone through a situation like the one on Tuesday in my whole career. I couldn't sleep that night."

The 28-year-old added: "I've had a good career with no acts of indiscipline anywhere.

"But at that moment I felt rage because I wanted to keep playing."
