Wolves boss McCarthy insists no row behind Van Damme sale
Wolves boss Mick McCarthy insists there was no row with Jelle van Damme ahead of his sale this week.
The Belgium international failed to settle and McCarthy felt there was no point in retaining his services although he cannot play for Liege until January 1.
McCarthy said: "There was no point (in keeping Van Damme). When someone moves, why does it always have to be the case that someone has 'fallen out.'
"He is a good player and sometimes it just doesn't work out. This was one of those occasions.
"He came, he started in the team, he got injured in his first game and things haven't worked out for him personally.
"He had his family life and sometimes all those little things add up to the fact that it just doesn't work out and that's what happened.
"I moved myself to play in France and, although I was blissfully happy, I came back to Millwall because I wasn't playing."
McCarthy added: "I like Jelle and, when he played, he gave his all.
"But, if he wants to go back, then even if there is one percent not totally committed to it, then why would I continue to play him when I've got lads who are totally committed?"
