Villa defender Davies expecting jeers for Man City's Barry

Aston Villa defender Curtis Davies expects Manchester City midfielder Gareth Barry to be jeered by fans tomorrow night.

Davies said: "I'd like to think the fans would clap Gareth but I've got a feeling it will be jeers."

He added: "He did this club a good service over the 10 years or more that he was here. But obviously football is very fickle and I think people see the short-term picture.

"I know Gareth has gone from saying he wanted to play Champions League football, when he nearly moved to Liverpool last summer, to moving to Manchester City.

"But maybe he's looked at his options and thought that long-term maybe Manchester City might have the structure to become a Champions League team more so than us.

"If he sees there's an opportunity to do that, then obviously that's Gareth's choice but we'll beg to differ."
