Aston Villa boss Dean Smith explains decision to axe Ross Barkley

Aston Villa boss Dean Smith has revealed why he dropped Ross Barkley and replaced him with a teenage rookie. But Smith says Barkley handled the snub professionally and may return on Wednesday at Sheffield United with Jack Grealish not back in training yet amid a shin injury. Attacking midfielder Barkley, 27, has endured an inconsistent spell on loan from Chelsea to Villa this term.
