Johnny Manziel ‘hated’ in Alouettes locker room: report

According to TVA Sports reporter Charles-Antoine Sinotte, quarterback Johnny Manziel is not well liked by his Montreal Alouettes teammates.

On his Les Partants show, Sinotte divulges that he has sources telling him Manziel is “hated” in the locker room and some current Alouettes players don’t want the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner to return in 2019.

Manziel is signed through the 2019 season and he plans to ‘come back for another year‘ with Montreal. The 25-year-old is 0-6 as a starter completing 95-of-146 passes (65 per cent) for 1,092 yards, three touchdowns against seven interceptions while rushing 25 times for 177 yards.

After the Alouettes latest loss in Toronto, Manziel left the field immediately after the final play instead of sticking around to shake hands as players usually do. That’s not how a leader of a football team or organization should conduct himself. Based on the report from Sinotte other members of the Alouettes have grown tired of his immature acts such as laughing at Antonio Pipkin when he threw a pick-six and complaining publicly about his lack of playing time.

Manziel appears to be wearing on – instead of endearing himself to – the Alouettes.
