McCarthy defends Jarvis decision

BY foxsports • May 12, 2011

It had been suggested that McCarthy dropped Jarvis due to concerns over his form but the Wanderers boss has dismissed that claim. "Jarvo has had a great season, he's been fantastic," he said. "He's more than a contender for player of the season. "But he's like everyone else. You can't just perform on the pitch every weekend. "Because I am loyal to players and stay with them through difficult times and difficult performances, why is it then said that I've dropped them? "With others it's called 'squad rotation' where players are left out because they're a little bit tired and need a rest. "Because I'm very loyal to players it seems when I do it it's taken as an exception. "Some players have played a lot of games and it's a tough old league. Everybody's time will come again."
