Chris Coleman has told defender Zat Knight that he is drinking in the last chance saloon.
Fulham boss Chris Coleman has told defender Zat Knight that he is drinking in the last chance saloon.
Knight recently earned Coleman's wrath by spending a night on the tiles just four days before The Cottagers faced Manchester United, breaking a club curfew in the process.
But the Craven Cottage chief is now ready to hand the England man a reprieve by selecting him in the squad to face West Brom in Tuesday's Carling Cup clash.
"What Zat did is not something I tolerate," said Coleman.
"If that happens again there will be an exit. There are no more chances. He has been punished and still has hard work to do. It's up to him if he wants to fulfil his potential.
"He understands where he has gone wrong. Every time I announced the team and he wasn't there, his face hit the floor.
"It's a learning process. He has had a lapse but he is still improving."
