New Eels recruit Jarryd Hayne has hit out at the coaching staff of the Parramatta Eels claiming they have not done enough to support his return to the club.
Hayne reportedly approached the Eels board this morning to ask Brad Arthur be released from his contract and that a new coach be appointed before the 2018 season.
“I’ve been working my butt off for this club since I signed and Brad has not done enough to nurture my talent in that time,” Jarryd Hayne said in a statement released today.
“It is my belief that a new coach is needed to take the Eels in a fresh direction and guide the team to success until my sudden departure to a new club.”
Hayne, who has attended one video session since returning, is adamant that new coaching blood is needed to bring out the best in his game, a point he was quick to reaffirm at a press conference held only moments ago.
“I would like to see a real mentor of the game take the helm here at the Eels, like a Wayne Bennett or a Neil Henry type,” Hayne said.
When questioned as to why he would want Neil Henry as coach given he only recently had him fired from the Titans, a visibly unhappy Jarryd fired back.
“Okay, what’s your name mate? You’re fired. I won’t accept questions like that alright, those kinds of questions don’t bring out the best in me okay champ,” Hayne bristled before storming out of the press conference.
Hayne is now seeking a release from the Eels following the incident.
