Barry happy he stayed at Villa

Published Add your comment

Gareth Barry believes his decision to remain with Aston Villa has been justified as he prepares to face Tottenham in the Boxing Day clash at White Hart Lane.

Barry was a Spurs fan as a youngster and the north London club were one of those linked with signing him when he was contemplating leaving Villa last summer. But Barry opted to instead sign a new four-year deal with Villa, was made skipper by manager Martin O´Neill and has been in outstanding form.

Barry told PA Sport: "Tottenham were one of the clubs being linked with me. I´m glad I made the decision I did. At the time it was a big decision for myself. I think I can sit here and say it was the right one judging on how my season has gone and how I think the team can do this season."
