Some Aston Villa supporters on Twitter have hit out at Micah Richards after he claimed that he is 'fully satisfied' with his career on social media.

The 30-year-old has not played for the Championship club since Steve Bruce's first game in charge on October 2016, with his contract at the club due to expire in the summer, according to transfermarkt.

Nonetheless, on Sunday, the highly-criticised senior player took to his personal Twitter account to state that he is happy with what he has done in his career. 

Richards is not a popular figure at Villa Park because he was part of, and was captain, of the team that suffered relegation to the Championship in 2016.

Since then, he has hardly played for the club and that has only added fuel to the supporters anger, who clearly wanted him to leave many seasons ago.

 

One fan on Twitter told Richards that he should have 'retired two years ago', while another fan labelled him as a 'disgrace' and stated that he cannot wait for him to leave. 

It is fair to say that some of the Villa Park faithful were furious with Richards Twitter message. 

Here is a selection of Villa fans on Twitter reacting to Richards's message:

Centre-back Richards moved to Villa Park during the summer of 2015 when Tim Sherwood added him to his squad following the departure of many key players.

Sherwood was sacked only months into the new season, with Remi Garde taking the helm as things were from bad to worse to an absolute disaster. 

Villa suffered their first relegation in nearly 30 years and that clearly didn't sit well with the supporters as the owners and players took the brunt of the criticism.
