Aston Villa fans react to Mile Jedinak’s appointment

Mile Jedinak finished a decent footballing career with Aston Villa but his journey in the game has not been concluded just yet.

The Australia international appeared for the national side on 79 occasions, scoring 20 goals from defensive midfield in the process.

The bearded enforcer moved to Crystal Palace in 2011 and stayed at Selhurst Park for five years before he moved to Villa Park in 2016 for an undisclosed fee, per BBC Sport.

Did he really play for us?! No Villa fan has managed to name all of these obscure Villans….

Can you name this obscure former Aston Villa player?

Jedinak made 80 appearances for Villa during his twilight years in the Midlands in what proved to be the beginning of a lengthy chapter in his career.

Per Birmingham Mail, the 35-year-old’s decision to retire from the game last summer did not mark the end of his time with the club.

Indeed, the Sydney-born man has now undertaken a coaching role with the club and stepped up to the role of an academy coach in light of the departure of Richard Beale, who was the U18s academy manager.

And plenty of Villa fans have expressed their delight about the news…

These fans, meanwhile, were divided on Jedinak’s footballing ability.

One fan suggested that he possessed no talent and alluded to the dangers of allowing him to influence and coach the next generation.

Is Jedinak a wise appointment?

Yes

Yes

No

No

On the flip side, however, was a fan suggesting he didn’t get the credit he deserved during his time at Villa Park.
