Baros In Shop Window?

Baros In Shop Window?

Looks like Villa boss David O'Leary is worried that Milan Baros might put himself back in the shop window at the World Cup next summer.

According to O'Leary, Baros, who was top scorer in the Euro 2004 tournament, may attract the attention of the 'elite' clubs.

O'Leary told Sky Sports: 'Milan will go to the World Cup next summer and what worries me is him having another outstanding tournament. That would mean us getting offers in for him. That's what would worry me. He came here at a difficult time for this club so there is a lot more to come from the lad. He is starting to pick up fitness-wise from being out for a while after coming here. He has also had to play with different partners all the time, which hasn't been ideal either, and had to play on his own a couple of times, which is not ideal either.'

Adding: 'There have been disruptions but I still think there is a lot more to come. He had a brilliant Euro 2004. It helps that he has got the World Cup qualifiers out of the way and can concentrate on Villa.'

According to our poll on favourite striker partnerships, Baros +Phillips got 33% and Baros + Angel got 19%. The only votes higher than that was for the option that 'it doesn't matter who is played because they don't get the service' with 41%.

Maybe O'Leary should try talking up our club and team a bit more and then the players might not get the wanderlust? After all, this is the club that is paying the manager a million a year, not that bad a deal for such a poor motivator is it?
