Fabian Delph’s move to Manchester City last week had Aston Villa fans foaming at the mouth.
The England international had insisted that he was happy as captain of the Villains and was looking forward to continuing to work with Tim Sherwood at Villa Park. But a sudden change of heart saw him complete an £8million switch to the Etihad Stadium just six days later.
The reaction from the Villa faithful was understandable as Delph was labelled a ‘snake’ and a ‘mercenary’ on social media. But Villa supporters aren’t the only ones to have been betrayed by their favourite players over the years.
