‘You deserved a better run in the team’ – Aston Villa fans react to player exit



Aston Villa manager Steve Bruce has recently spoken out about his decision to let right-back Ritchie De Laet depart Villa Park on loan.

The Belgian right-back has found his game-time limited at Villa Park this term, after having a promising pre-season campaign.

The former Leicester City defender has recently sealed a loan switch to Australian outfit Melbourne City, after making just two appearances for Villa this season, both coming in the Carabao Cup.

Bruce, speaking in his Blackburn Rovers pre-match press conference, admitted that “it was only right” to let De Laet move on, after what had been a “frustrating time” for the former Leicester City left-back.
