Ross Barkley has opened up on his season-long loan move from Chelsea to Aston Villa.
The Blues midfielder was signed from Everton over two and a half years back. However, the English man never showed any signs of improvement over that period despite getting plenty of game time.
He has had plenty of chances under both Sarri and Lampard but his one-dimensional play and lack of quick thinking always cost him his spot and Chelsea the match on multiple ocassions.
The player, on loan at Villa now has had a go at Chelsea for being unfair to him, a mentality which just shows that he was never self-reflective about his game, but rather obnoxious over his shortcomings.
Speaking to the Villa website, the Englishman said: “The last couple of years I’ve been stop-start, performing well and then being out of the team.
“To come here and have the chance to play and perform regularly is a big thing for me. With the Euros at the end of the season, it’s a big target for me and hopefully I can be there.
“Dean Smith swayed me with the way he spoke to me, and it looks like it’s going to be an exciting season.”
