Deeney accuses Walsall team-mates

16 March 2010 03:20
Walsall's Troy Deeney has launched an astonishing attack on his team-mates, claiming that some of them are happy just to 'pick up their money'.Deeney's outburst came after Saturday's 2-0 defeat at Leyton Orient, which left the Saddlers 13th in League One. [LNB]"Some people are happy to let each game roll by and keep picking up their money," he told BBC WM. "It's pathetic. [LNB]"I've left my son to come to work and try and earn money, and I can't do my job if people aren't playing me in." [LNB]The 21-year-old continued: "If I'm not doing my job properly, I'm going to end up on the football scrapheap. [LNB]"I don't want that. I want to go on to bigger and better things but, unfortunately, I need other people to help me as well." [LNB]Saturday's loss at Brisbane Road came just a fortnight after Chris Hutchings' side were hammered 5-1 at Southampton. And Deeney believes that the club's supporters deserve more.[LNB] If I had enough money I'd give all the supporters their money back Walsall striker Troy Deeney "Against Southampton you've got excuses," added Deeney. "They've got a bigger budget, better players all through the team and they're just better. Those are the pure facts. [LNB]"But when you play against, no disrespect to Leyton Orient, an average team, it's made us look even worse. [LNB]"It was embarrassing and, as with Southampton, if I had enough money I'd give all the supporters their money back, but I don't earn enough. [LNB]"We've got very important games coming up and if we play anything like that against Colchester this Saturday we'll get whacked."
