Sutton faces decision time

14 April 2007 10:27
Aston Villa striker Chris Sutton will decide in the next two weeks whether to call time on his career due to an eye injury. The 33-year-old has not played since just before Christmas and is set to see a second specialist about his vision problems. Villa boss Martin O'Neill said: "Chris has got another specialist to see. He has already seen one - and he has another one to see. "He will make his mind up about things after he has seen the second specialist. He will make his mind up about his whole future and career. That will be within the next ten days. "Chris has got a genuine concern. His concern always is no-one can give him any guarantees about what might be the consequences if he got cracked on the head again." Sutton only joined Villa last summer and has scored one goal in nine outings for the Midlands club, having previously enjoyed stints with Birmingham City, Celtic, Chelsea, Blackburn Rovers and Norwich City.
