Manager Ian Holloway has said that Ricardo Fuller’s passion got the better of him in the game against Blackburn, but he insists that kind of passion is exactly what we need in order to pull away from the bottom of the table.

Speaking to the official site following the strikers angry reaction to criticism from the stands, the manager said that he had apologised for his outburst, but that passion is something he needs all the players to show.

‘Like the fans I want every single one of Millwall’s players to be passionate and to care about doing well for this club, and Ricky is certainly one who had those qualities in abundance. Unfortunately that passion boiled over on Saturday. Ricky knows he shouldn’t have reacted in the way that he did and he has apologised for what happened.’

Holloway adds that everyone in the dressing room saw how passionate he was when he was talking about it after the game, because he badly wants to do well for us and help us lift ourselves up the table and his boiled over mainly because he was so disappointed in himself for the ‘shot that went wrong.’

‘Ricky had scored two for us the week before and I’m very pleased with his contribution this season. I’m lucky to have him here because he is the type of player who gives absolutely everything for the cause. He leaves nothing out there on the pitch and if he wasn’t like that, and he didn’t try and his absolute hardest, then I wouldn’t be picking him.’
