Arsenal youngster Ainsley Maitland-Niles has been dropped by his on-loan manager Mick McCarthy after his mother allegedly left an abusive voicemail on the Ipswich manager's phone, as per the Sun.
Maitland Niles, just 18 years old, is enjoying a successful loan at Portman Road, having featured 26 times for McCarthy in the Championship, although after his mother left him a rude message complaining about his treatment of her son, the former Sunderland manager is reportedly extremely unhappy, and will be leaving him out of the team as a result.
And it's not the first time someone has had a problem with the player's mother. She was arrested on suspicion of assaulting two Arsenal staff members, after she attempted to drag him off the pitch during an U21s game.
A Gunners source told the publication that McCarthy was 'disgusted' by Jules Niles and feels the player's career is being hampered by her behaviour.
"Mick's a Yorkshireman and he's prepared to tolerate most things, but not something like this.
"He's only ever tried to do what's right for the kid and protect his career, but this is something new to him.
"He likes the boy and thinks he has potential to be a top player, but he's worried that his mother is having a detrimental affect on his career."
It's believed McCarthy enraged the youngster's mum after he told him to stay in Ipswich instead of returning to London for a party.
