Dennis Mortimer states that Gabriel Agbonlahor has been a mediocre player for Villa for all his career.
Former Aston Villa star Dennis Mortimer has said that Gabriel Agbonlahor has never been a good player for Villa and that he was the worst player of the current campaign.
He does not understand how a player like Gabriel Agbonlahor has been at the side for so long.
Indeed, Aston Villa has had a dreadful season and most of their players if not all have been underperforming this season. However, Gabriel Agbonlahor has taken the limelight for not only his poor performance on the pitch but also off the pitch.
He was even stripped of his captaincy role when he was pictured partying on the night when his club was relegated. This has not gone well with the Villa fans, and it is quite difficult to see him playing for the club next season.
Dennis Mortimer believes that this is the worst Aston Villa team that he has seen in his lifetime. He believes that there need to be significant changes in the side if they want to get back in the Premier League. He said that Gabriel Agbonlahor is a player that is past his best and should definitely leave the club in the summer. He said that even at the time when he had pace, Agbonlahor has never convinced him, and he cannot understand why the club kept him.
There are media reports that Roberto Di Matteo might be the next Villa manager, and this will definitely be the greatest challenge of his career. He will have major decisions to make in order to change a side that has been underperforming for so long. Some players will need to leave in the summer, and it is believed that he will be given money in order to sign new players.
