Birmingham City captain Paul Robinson has blasted this season’s set of loan players and says they have ‘let down’ the team.
The Blues have recruited six loan players in 2014, and the 35 year-old defender has questioned the new players effort towards the team.
Robinson said: “The first batch of loan players were different class.
“But the second lot have let us down a little bit. You don’t want anyone out there not giving 100%.
“The players that go out there have got to wear that shirt with pride.”
Birmingham currently sit 21st in the Championship, hanging dangerously above the Relegation zone on goal difference, and Robinson does not think the loan players are out to try and save the club from the drop down to League 1.
Robinson blasted: “For me, they’ve let the gaffer down, they’ve let us players down, and they’ll just go back to their clubs and get on with it.”
All six of the loanees are from Premier League clubs, with Albert Rusnak and Emyr Huws from Manchester City, Federico Macheda, Tom Thorpe and Tyler Blackett from Manchester United and Jordan Ibe from Liverpool.
Robinson is currently serving a three match ban after receiving his 15th yellow card of the season.
