'An absolute disgrace' - Aston Villa fans destroy 28-year-old after this Twitter post

By Amir Mir

Aston Villa fans have hit out at Micah Richards after he appeared on the club’s official Twitter account answering questions.

The club posted a video on Thursday afternoon where the 28-year-old defender was revealing all from ‘Inside the dressing room’.

However, fans weren’t too pleased that he was given the limelight as they absolutely destroyed the senior man on social media.

Supporters questioned why he is still at the club after he played a huge part in Villa’s relegation to the Championship last season.

Richards moved to the Midlands on a free transfer during the summer of 2015, with former boss Tim Sherwood adding him to the club’s ranks.

However, the former England international became a disastrous signing, being part of a team that recorded only three league wins last term.

Therefore, it is no surprise that fans weren’t too pleased to see his face as many labelled him an absolute disgrace.

One supporter stated that he should be sold in the summer along with striker Gabby Agbonlahor, who is another player that divides opinion.

Overall, fans laid into the player and the club as they were clear in what they thought about the senior man.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Richards has barely featured for Villa this season, playing only three games in all competitions, with his last appearance coming in October.

That feisty encounter was against Midlands rivals Wolves and it was the first match of Bruce’s current reign.

In other Aston Villa news, these four academy players should start against Reading on Saturday.
