Aston Villa fans are angry at the fact that exiled players Ross McCormack and Micah Richards are getting full payments despite not playing. It seems Steve Bruce is hoping their contract run out following comments after the win at Burton Albion on Saturday.
He said the only time some players can leave is when others want them. And a consideration in that is how much the players earn, according to their contract. He added that Aston Villa was “a big club and people have earned big money.” He said the club would be looking to keep players they want and let others move on. On those that want to move on but have huge salaries, then waiting for the contract to run out is the obvious choice.
