'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Delphinitely Not About the Money

Fabian Delph has said he joined Villa because he is interested in becoming a Fab player as opposed to lining his pockets with money.

Speaking ahead of his possible debut in tomorrow's match against Fiorentina, Delph said on the official site he says that the manager was a major attraction because he has a 'track record' with younger players and helping them develop adding that the money isn't the motivation for him.

He goes on to explain "I want to develop and become the best player I possibly can. I felt this is the best club for that. I want to work hard and get a chance in the team. I am definitely up for the challenge but I need to show I am worthy."

Interestingly he also explains the difference in the league football saying in the Premiership you get more time on the ball but if you lose it, it is far harder to get back!

'Everyone is bigger and incredibly quick. It's a different world really. There are some fantastic players here and I am sure I can develop from training with them.'

Certainly making all the right noises isn't he? He could have taken the big pay day from the likes of Manchester City but knows this is where the young England players are developing and no doubt understands we've not just thrown cash at this, we've also set the infrastructure like Bodymoor Heath up to build from the ground upwards.

What a great lad! A 19 year old turns down instant money and fame purely because he wants to get there on merit and become a top quality player and make a name for himself through effort! What a gem we have signed! With his ability and that attitude I'm going to make my prediction that 3 years from now he will be better than Gareth Barry is today!
