Aston Villa boss David O'Leary has told Lee Hendrie he does not want to see any more revelations about the midfielder's private life in the newspapers.
"What I can't fault is that every day here, he trains tremendously well and is never late," O'Leary said.
"But I've told him that this stuff in papers is something I'm sick to death of seeing.
"I'm sure plenty of other managers have told him the same thing. He's had this type of thing all through his life."
