Premiership player Kane Cornes has slammed Gold Coast’s Steven May, calling out the club’s skipper for handling himself in a “disgraceful” manner during the trade period.
The 26-year-old has one year remaining on his contract with the Suns, but has drawn interest from opposing clubs.
“I think the way he has carried himself has bordered on disgraceful really,” Cornes said on NAB AFL Trade Radio.
“To be shopping yourself around like he is without committing to your footy club, the club that you’re captain of, is disgraceful in my opinion, on the back of what Tom Lynch has done.”
Cornes disagrees with May’s decision to potentially seek a trade, but believes he should have at least given his side notice by now if he was planning to make a move.
“If you want out, tell the club you’re out so they can actually move on and get a deal for you,” Cornes said.
“Don’t keep stringing them along, meeting with other clubs without giving them an answer.
“I just think the way that he’s carried himself has really let his footy club down.”
Melbourne and Collingwood are reportedly leading the way to gain the defender’s signature, should he decide to leave.
