A source, currently holidaying with Taarabt in Marrakech, denies the claims.
He told The Sun: “Adel is furious. He has no idea where the story has come from and he categorically denies saying any of it.
“He has never said that he would not play alongside Joey again.
“Adel has played alongside Joey many times this season. He respects him as his captain, a player and his team-mate.”
