Richard Dunne may be offered a new contract by Aston Villa, despite not featuring at all this season.
Paul Lambert states that he know’s what kind of player Richard Dunne is, and he doesn’t need to impress the manager with his performances. Having said that, the key is that he recovers from his injury and the doctors can confirm his ability to play football again in the near future.
“It is not a case of running out of time. I know what the guy can do. It is not as if he is 19 or 20 years old and has to impress.
“I have an open mind but the main thing for me is that he is going to be fit again.
“We will have to wait and see what the surgeon has said about the injury. I am pretty sure that he will not require another operation. – Paul Lambert
I can understand why Dunne may be offered a new deal, he is experienced and if we get relegated I don’t really see many Premier League teams chasing his signature. Also, maybe Lambert won’t be given to much money in the summer, so any players we have, we should keep. Or maybe I’m digging way to deep and Lambert simply wants to keep Dunne.
Nonthe-less, Dunne has been important in the past and may prove to be even more important in the near future. Whether or not he deserves a new deal is difficult to judge, but most importantly I hope he recovers soon and is able to play football again.
