Wales boss claims West Ham United defender James Collins refused to join squad
11:35am Wednesday 11th September 2013 in Football
Wales boss Chris Coleman has claimed West Ham United defender James Collins refused to join the international squad before their 3-0 defeat to Serbia.
Coleman invited Collins to join up with the squad after injuries and suspension ruled out several defenders.
But Coleman told the BBC: "James explained to me that he didn't want to come into the squad after being on stand-by because psychologically he was disappointed.
"But that's not the attitude I'm looking for."
