STOP IT! Aston Villa ace McGinn: I'm sick of coaches and players moaning about fatigue

Aston Villa ace John McGinn says he's sick of moaning managers and players complaining about the busy Christmas programme.

Villa's 1-1 draw at Chelsea on Monday was their second match in the space of barely 48 hours, following the 3-0 Boxing Day win over Crystal Palace.

But when asked about the tight turnaround, McGinn replied: “I am sick of hearing coaches and players from other clubs complaining about tiredness and fatigue. I am sure there are a lot of people in the country who would swap places with us at the moment.

“The Villa fans also need to give a lot of credit to the players from overseas. It has now been six, seven or eight months since they have seen their families.

“It is impeccable dedication, amazing effort and it is just a great place to play at the moment.

“We have a very fit squad of young, hungry players and we are very fortunate to be able to go and do what we love.

“A lot of people aren't getting to do that at the moment so we are not taking it for granted."
