Man City boss Hughes: No reason for Villa fans to boo Barry

Mark Hughes insists Aston Villa fans should not boo Manchester City midfielder Gareth Barry upon his return to Villa Park tonight.

The City manager said: "The service he gave to Aston Villa was exemplary and instead of trying to take issue with players, maybe they should thank them for what they did for the club. I'm not saying it will happen because it very rarely happens.

"Whenever players move clubs there is a financial deal - that's a given. It's no different here, but that's not the main reason players are coming to City.

"They come here because they know there are good players here already and, in the future, there's the possibility that even better players will come."
