‘Irishman without rules’ Lafferty is ‘unmanageable’ and ‘a womaniser’

NORWICH CITY target Kyle Lafferty is “an Irishman without rules” and a “womaniser” according to his former club chairman.

Palermo Maurizo chairman Zamparini said: “Why was Lafferty sold? It was requested by my coach who asked me to send him away. He is a womaniser – he disappears for a week, takes a plane to go hunt for women in Milan.

"His behaviour is unmanageable. I asked Iachini to straighten him out but he told me can’t. Kyle’s an Irishman without rules.”

Despite the less than gushing character reference, Zamparini did pay tribute to the Northern Ireland international and former Rangers man’s commitment on the field: “He never trains, he’s completely off the rails. On the field, he’s a great player because he’s given us everything he had and more.”
