Blues chief Sullivan hits out at big earners again

Birmingham owner David Sullivan has again slammed the club's players following their relegation from the Premiership.

Blues' fate was confirmed on Saturday as they could only draw with Newcastle while Portsmouth beat Wigan.

Sullivan has been angered by the attitude of a number of players and is now preparing for a clear-out over the summer with big names such as striker Chris Sutton set to leave.

Sullivan told the Daily Star: 'I won't name names but some players haven't done as well as I'd hoped.

'But then again footballers are quite arrogant people. Players don't say sorry. They will blame anybody but themselves.

'We've been guilty of too much complacency and over-confidence and it has cost us.'

The City chief now wants to remove some of the top earners and bring in players geared up for a battle in the Coca-Cola Championship next season.

He added: 'Every penny has to count. Sutton won't be here. I think he's a very talented player but he's cost us £45,000 a week, which works out at well over £1million and he's only played a handful of games.

'We had some lads out there against Newcastle who won't want to break sweat playing in the Championship against the likes of Southend and Colchester.'
