Villa fans react to behind-the-scenes images of Wesley in training

Welsey’s opening to life at Aston Villa did not go according to plan.

The Brazilian striker was signed for a club-record fee in the summer window, but he struggled to adapt to the Premier League.

A return of four goals in his opening eight appearances offered plenty of promise, but a run of 12 games without a goal thereafter told a different story.

In a cruel turn of fate, Wesley was forced off with a cruciate ligament injury in the same fixture in which he return to goal scoring form against Burnley.

The severity of the injury ruled him out for the remainder of the season, which forced Villa to enter the transfer market and sanction a deal for Mbwana Samatta, before the global pandemic placed football on hold.

And it appears that the powerful 6ft 3 forward is making strides towards recovery, with the player himself recently revealing a series of images which show him training behind-the-scenes.

In response to the emerging photos, plenty of Villa fans took to Twitter to big up their star striker and tip him to shine upon his return to action, while others alluded to Samatta’s arrival as one that has the potential to shift the dynamic.
