Gabriel Agbonlahor doesn’t have what it takes to be the captain of Aston Villa

Fabian Delph is the captain of the Premier League side Aston Villa but there have been a few occasions in previous seasons when Gabriel Agbonlahor was given the captaincy armband but the former Aston Villa player, Andy Gray believes that Agbonlahor doesn’t have the leadership skills needed in order to guide a team.

Jack Grealish is latest in most Talented Players List

Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish is the latest in a long list of talented young players to come from the youth academy at the club.

The 19-year-old is yet to start a Premier League encounter this campaign, but he has already played more than 200 minutes of football as a substitute. He has already featured in nine appearances this campaign.

Gabriel Agbonlahor for England national team

Gabriel Agbonlahor appeared to be the next best prospect for the England national team to come out of the Aston Villa youth academy.

In his early years as a professional footballer, Agbonlahor primarily relied on the blistering pace in order to make an impact. This has substantially reduced in recent years due to injury problems and the player concentrating on strength rather than speed. The 29-year-old is now placed a perfect foil for Christian Benteke, but he has also proven to be an adequate replacement playing alone. Agbonlahor has featured in 14 league matches this season.

Neville claims United are playing soft football

Manchester United spent more than 150 million Pounds during the transfer window, but, in spite of that, they failed to build a team that can at least save them from getting humiliated by the minnows.
While, the Red Devils are looking fantastic upfront, they are looking equally pathetic at the back end, giving easy striking opportunities to the opponent teams in every match. It’s resulting in big defeats.
Gary Neville, the former Manchester United player, believes that the team is just not tightened enough.

Little Claims Villa Should Keep Agbonlahor

Former Aston Villa striker Brian Little has claimed that the club should consider keeping Gabriel Agbonlahor beyond his current contract. The 27-year-old came through the ranks at Aston Villa, but he is widely expected to leave the club next summer. He is out of contract in 12 months and the financial situation surrounding Villa is looking bleak. Hence, there is a possibility that he may not be offered a new deal and will be forced out of the club.

Vassell Advises Agbonlahor Stay

Aston Villa star Gabriel Agbonlahor has been linked with a move away from the club, but the club’s former striker Darius Vassell says that the former England international should consider staying at the club and become a legend. Agbonlahor came through the ranks at Aston Villa and has played for the club ever since. He made his debut in 2005 and he has made more than 250 appearances in the league for the club. At 27 years of age, he is the prime of his career, but the presence of players like Christian Benteke have led to the striker being starved of opportunities up front.

BERTRAND BACKS LAMBERT

Aston Villa defender Ryan Bertrand has praised the impact of manager Paul Lambert at the club. Bertrand was brought to Villa Park on a season-long loan deal from Chelsea during the January transfer window.

Due to the presence of Ashley Cole and Caesar Azpilicueta, the England international found it difficult to get into the first-team regular basis. He has been a breath of fresh air at Villa Park, as he has been producing impressive performances since joining the club.

WILL GABY FEATURE?

It’s still not certain whether Gabriel Agbonlahor would feature for Aston Villa in their next league game against Everton.

The 27 years old winger had injured his foot last month while making appearance against the Reds and had to miss the game against West Bromwich Albion due to that injury.
However, Paul Lambert, the person in charge at Villa, is optimistic about the return of the player.

VILLA EARN DRAW

A 2nd half penalty kick from Steven Gerrard rescued 1 point for Liverpool as they faced off against Aston Villa during their latest Premier League match. When the game concluded the goalkeeper of Aston Villa stated that even Luis Suarez himself was surprised when the referee awarded them with the set-piece.

"I was pretty confident in myself that I hadn't touched him so I said to him 'did I touch you?' He said 'I don't know.' That's the honest truth of it," he told reporters.

CONFIDENT

Aston Villa’s Gabriel Agbonlahor is confident that the dry run of goals that his teammate Benteke is experiencing will disappear soon.

Benteke made an impressive season last year when he netted 19 goals in 34 appearances for his club but now is struggling to maintain the momentum from last time having scored 4 goals in 11 matches so far.
