LAWRENCE Vigouroux may have played his last game for Swindon Town after admitting he wants to leave the club in the wake of his latest disciplinary issue, admits manager David Flitcroft.

Chilean U20 international Vigouroux was dropped from the Town matchday squad for their most recent game at Barnet in League Two on New Year’s Day, with the manager revealing that was a punishment after both he and James Brophy went on a night out in Swindon in the aftermath of the team’s home win over Notts County two days prior.

Two days after the Barnet game, the 24-year-old subsequently posted on Facebook that he was seeking a “fresh start somewhere else” before going on to tell Chilean news outlet El Deportivo that he had received offers from other clubs.

This is the second time Vigouroux has caught the ire of Flitcroft this season. The former Liverpool stopper received a four-match ban from the FA for comments made to match officials in the wake of the narrow home loss to Coventry City on September 30 and did not return to the starting line-up for another eight games after that.

Flitcroft confirmed Vigouroux has not been involved in any first-team activities since the incident on December 30 and would remain unavailable for selection for this weekend’s home game against Forest Green Rovers and may well not play for Town again.

“There is a real good chance of that. You can never say never but certainly he has made a massive desire to leave this football club,” said Flitcroft.

“That hasn’t just happened last week, that happened the day I arrived, that happened on deadline day (over the summer) as almost a breakdown from not getting the move he thought he might have got, and then obviously his article in the press where he has told the world he wants to leave the football club.

“I have known privately for a long, long time and have had to deal with that but when someone then says publicly they don’t want to be at our football club and shows such a desire to get out, our chairman doesn’t deserve that, the supporters certainly don’t deserve that, and the group of players don’t.

“He is not training with the first team, he has got discipline procedures we are currently going through and I have not seen him since the incident.”

In his interview with El Deportivo, Vigouroux claimed that the incident that led to disciplinary action against him and Brophy was a meal out which also involved other members of the squad, who went unpunished.

Flitcroft confirmed this but stated Vigouroux and Brophy were the only players to break club rules by drinking alcohol and also extending their night out by going into town afterwards.

“There was a meal that some of the players went for at a restaurant in Swindon,” said Flitcroft.

“If a player wants to go out two days before a game with his family and friends, I have no problem with that.

“The lads go out quite a bit around town for something to eat, I like the fact they are in Swindon and socialising together. I don’t want players stuck in their rooms, I want them out.

“What you are not allowed to do is drink alcohol and the only two that were then out in town afterwards were the two involved (in the disciplinary process) and that is a fact.”

Both Vigouroux and Brophy were previously fined by the club last March alongside former players Jordan Stewart and Brandon Ormonde-Ottewill after a similar incident ahead of an important home game against Sheffield United.
