Baros Situation Looks Dire

Baros Situation Looks Dire

Mystery surrounds the fitness of Villa star Milan Baros.

Conflicting reports surround the Czech strikers' prospects of playing in the World Cup.

The team physio Karel Malis ruled out the players chances in Czech newspaper Sip but the team's press officer and team doctors denied the claim!

Malis said: 'The hope is gone, Baros is definitely lost and will go home. After four hours of examinations in Duisburg, we have brought terrible news to our camp.'

Baros also said: 'It is no use, I am giving it up.'

However their press officer countered this news and said: 'It is not true, Milan Baros will stay with us and the treatment will continue.'

And his doctors told the press 'For normal mortals, treatment takes six to eight weeks, but we are at the World Cup. We have been trying to shorten the time of the treatment to have Milan available here, but on the other hand we do not want to damage the health of the player. We will try other things, other examinations. We will be wiser by the evening. We will take the decision on Monday after the game against Ghana. Milan sees the situation is not improving. He is nervous and disappointed. He is afraid of the upcoming days. The problem has affected his mental state.'

Baros has already said he won't take pain killing injections and risk his health.

I'd rather see him sold if we could get big money for him but without a good WC it's unlikely. The second choice of getting him back fit and raring to go isn't bad either.

This is really bad news for villa, a couple of decent performances on the world stage (which he's done before) would send Baros's value through the roof. With some of Baros's performances last season coupled with the emergence of Moore and Gabby we can hardly say that Baros is a key member of our team.

would have to say he is a key member of our team.With out his goals we would be in the championship and there is the mater of a brace against the blue nose scum.If he can be sold for a massive profit he is doing the club a service.if he stays and plays for us nxt year and has a great season up until xmas im sure a club in Europe may be willing to invest in a good striker who aint cup tied or else he stays and hopefully gives us something to cheer about cause boy do we need something to keep us interested.

Was he not, himself, even sceptical about playing on for another season? I reckon he's had a niggling injury thats not got better and is now threatening to finish him. I hope not, because i like him as a player, but i'm reading between the lines.
