In the final blow in a bitter public dispute, Phil Gould has bowed in his justification to drop coach Anthony Griffin in a harsh response to the coach's criticism of supreme Penrith.

Griffin was fired as a coach on Monday, with Gould stating that he had lost the players' faith and that he was not the man to hand over the position of prime minister to the club.

The coach responded to Fox Sports' NRL 360 on Wednesday, publicly questioning Gould's patience and saying he was a control freak who looked forward to being in the lead when Penrith won the competition.

An enraged Gould responded to the Nine Network Footy Show on Thursday night and said Penrith "would not have won a prime ministerial position the same way he was training," despite being five weeks out of the final.

"He has hurt a lot of people in that interview and he has embarrassed himself in front of people who know the truth," he said.

In a dazzling move, Gould then aired the club's dirty clothes saying he had twice asked the club to suspend Griffin's launch this season after internal criticism.

He then claimed that the current interim coach, Cameron Ciraldo, had twice asked to resign under Griffin, only to have Gould convince him not to do so.

Ciraldo, who has been assistant coach of the Panthers for the past five years, confirmed the revelation.

"I thought at the time it was the best thing I could do, but I'm glad Gus convinced me not to," he said.

"After beating Manly, I felt that things were not right, the silence becomes deafening when you are outside.

Penrith is hoping to lure Ivan Cleary back to the club that fired him three years ago, although Cleary still has two seasons to fulfill his contract with the Wests Tigers coach.

Amid accusations of unethical behavior by Tigers president Marina Go, Gould said Penrith had never suggested Cleary break his contract and return for the 2019 season.
