Green issues rallying cry to Aston Villa fans

Andre Green has had a difficult season at Aston Villa due to injury woes, but there is light at the end of the tunnel.

The 19-year-old has made just seven appearances in all competitions, and five of those outings were in the Championship.

A hamstring injury has kept the attacking midfielder on the treatment table since early January, with his last outing being a 3-1 defeat to Peterborough in the FA Cup.

Earlier this week, Green provided a positive injury update, telling the Birmingham Mail that he is just a matter of weeks away from returning to action.

In order to build on his fitness, the teenager got 45 minutes under his belt in a friendly at Bodymoor Heath.

The Midlands outfit will not be in competitive action until after the international break on March 31, and it is unclear whether Green will play a part in the club’s Championship game against Hull City.

What the midfielder is focused on, though, is Villa pushing for Premier League promotion following their recent back-to-back defeats.

Steve Bruce’s side sit fourth in the standings, seven points adrift of the top two.
