All Time Low For Lee Hendrie
Lee Hendrie, currently on loan at Stoke, has told the Daily Star, after being left out by David O'Leary and more recently Martin O'Neill, that
'It's probably been the worst time of my career. You find yourself not playing, your confidence goes but that comes as a package - if you're not playing, you think you're not good enough. And that's why I wanted to come and play football here at Stoke - to get that lift to try and rebuild my confidence.'
Adding: 'Sometimes I would be in the squad and on the bench but not getting on. I've spoken to so many Villa fans who have been saying don't leave. This isn't something I want to do but I'm not playing football and that's what I want to do. I've always said I would love to see out my career at Villa and that would be an honour for me. So we'll see.'
