West Bromwich Albion fans fuming as Barry signs contract extension

Gareth Barry had a strong reputation at Everton for his hardworking efforts on the pitch, but since moving to West Bromwich Albion, the midfielder’s status has dropped.

The former England international, who earned 53 caps for his country, moved to The Hawthorns last year.

During the 2017-18 season, Barry made 29 appearances in all competitions, and he recorded one goal and one assist in that time.

His most memorable moment of the campaign is a negative one, though, as he was one of four players who stole a taxi from outside a fast-food restaurant after breaking curfew during a warm-weather training trip to Barcelona.

The group had called the cab to take them to get food before deciding to get behind the wheel while the driver was picking up their order.

The quartet apologised for their actions in February, but some fans have not forgiven them.

On Monday, the Express & Star reported that Barry had triggered a one-year extension on his contract, and plenty of supporters were not best pleased.
