Aston Villa fans angry after Wesley Moraes picks up injury against Kuwait

Football Writers' Association: Opening the Door to BAME Journalists

Aston Villa have had a lively start to pre-season that continued with a 4-1 win over Charlton last weekend. However, that wasn’t before the club entertained the Kuwait national team in a rather bizarre friendly.

New striker Wesley Moraes was one of the players to feature but was injured in the behind closed doors fixture as the Villans lost 2-1.

The Brazilian picked up what was described as a knock during the match but Dean Smith confirmed that he should be back in training on Tuesday or Wednesday.

However, that didn’t stop certain fans still slamming the club for playing him. One member of the Villa faithful said it was a stupid decision whilst another said it was foolish to play him.

A further supporter said it was ludicrous that Villa had so many players involved in friendlies across the space of a few days.

Wesley arrived for £22m this summer as the Midlands outfit broke their transfer record to bring him to Villa Park.

The former Club Brugge man netted twice against Walsall in a 5-1 win last week, which marked one of his most impressive performances to date.

Here’s the best of the reaction.
