Paul McGrath has demanded the Aston Villa players earn their wages – and offered to help out Roberto Di Matteo’s side.
Holte-End hero McGrath was reacting to his former side conceding an 88th-minute goal to Brentford on Wednesday night as they once again threw away a lead in the final minutes of a Championship match.
The former centre-back took to his personal Twitter account to vent his anger at the players after they conceded a late goal for the third consecutive home game.
Here is McGrath voicing his anger at the club’s players on his personal Twitter account:
McGrath also offered to give a helping hand to the Midlands giants, but insisted that the club are already in good hands.
Di Matteo’s side have potentially thrown away seven points this term from seven games, as they have dropped points against Sheffield Wednesday, Huddersfield, Nottingham Forest and Brentford.
The claret and blue club sit in 17th position in the Championship table, nine points off table toppers Huddersfield who have accumulated 16 points from a possible 21.
Villa travel to Portman Road on Saturday afternoon as they take on Mick McCarthy’s Ipswich side.
