Burnley midfielder Joey Gudjonsson has been suspended for two weeks after allegedly criticising manager Brian Laws.
Gudjonsson has been told to stay away from Turf Moor over the next fortnight as the club conduct a full investigation into what he said in an interview with an Icelandic website.
The 29-year-old is reported to have suggested that Laws had lost the dressing room even before their 6-1 home defeat at the hands of Manchester City.
“He lost the dressing room long ago,” Gudjonsson reportedly told fotbolti.net last week.
“I think all the players have lost faith in him, the performances say all that has to be said.”
The Iceland international has made just 14 appearances for the Clarets this season, with his last outing coming in the FA Cup defeat by Reading on 23rd January.
Laws took charge following Owen Coyle’s departure in January and has managed just two victories from his 14 games in charge.
