Baros Glad He Has Left Villa

Baros Glad He Has Left Villa

Milan Baros says that he was on his way to Chelsea but the deal fell through because Shaun Wright-Phillips didn't want to move to Villa Park.

Baros told my daily paper, Czech Sport: 'I agreed with Chelsea. It was practically a finished thing. Everything broke down over the fact Wright-Phillips did not want to go to Aston Villa. And coach O´Neill told me that without any replacement, he would not let me go as he would not have any strikers left.'

He also says he talked with Jose Mourinho, jeez, imagine them two together, they'd be fighting over the mirror and the doors would have to be widened so both ego's could fit into a room.

'We just spoke about the match. Just after the game in the tunnel he told me that he wanted me to join the team and asked me if I was interested. I told him so. But it did not happen in the end.'

Hope Jose had permission with Villa to ask that after the game?!?

He also was asked if he was sorry the move didn't work out and Baros diplomatically replied: 'I would be sorry if I went to a worse club, but now I am at Lyon.'

Adding about his spell at Villa which saw him as top scorer in the first season and an outcast virtually this season: 'I was injured, the club fought against relegation in the first season. They are close to the bottom again. This does not help an individual and it is difficult to shine. And we did not play in Europe. I do not want to make excuses, Aston Villa was not a good contract for me and I am glad it is over.'

That'll go down well, oh well, if that is his attitude, sod him, we've the better end of the deal with the John Carew arrival anyway according to our last poll:

Vital Villa asked who had the best end of the swap deal:

Lyon getting Baros 5%
Villa getting Carew 81%
About equal 11%
Unsure 3%

Hopefully his diatribe won't affect our chances of signing anyone else. Why mention it? He's basically saying He'd have moved to Chelsea instead of Lyon, which won't endear him to Lyon fans.

That is great because we are all happy, as regards he saying he is happy to be gone effecting other players wanting to come to us, I doubt it very much as he flopped at Liverpool as well.

Wonder where he will be in 18 months time when he's shown he aint quite as good without Koeller the side of him and Nedved behind? Not at Chelski I reckon!

Him going on about how we are low in the league. It would never occur to the prat that perhaps if he had scored a few more goals we wouldn't be. Good riddance to the bloke, he never looked liked he wanted to play for us anyway.

kentvilla... i doubt it. He'll probably be anonymous yet again, like he was at villa and liverpool. Good riddance to an over hyped player.
