Aston Villa striker Ross McCormack must apologise to his teammates and the club if he is to play for them again, according to a report in the Sun.
Villa boss Steve Bruce has made the demand after hearing of McCormack’s refusal to apologise following his move to Nottingham Forest and his missed training sessions at Villa Park due to a broken gate the striker’s home.
Bruce said: “Certainly, he won’t play for me unless he apologises, not to me but to the club and his team-mates. Then he’ll be like everybody else — new slate, no problem.”
McCormack was a big money summer signing for the Villans, moving to the club in a £12m deal. Many expected him to be the man to fire Villa back to the Premier League at the first time of asking, but things have not worked out for the Scot, and he was sent on loan to struggling Nottingham Forest on deadline day.
The skillful striker has previously stated that he thinks he could still have a future at Villa Park, but this looks increasingly less likely given the current clash of opinions from both manager and player.
