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.
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.
Let’s hope that’s not a grealish will be back soon comment, is ie it’s months but we don’t wanna release bad news so we will push it back a bit further everytime Somone asks

The new regime have done wonders since coming in, but that Kuwait game should’ve never happened. Ludicrous too have players involved in 3 friendlies in 4 days.

Now never play Big Wes in a meaningless friendly against Kuwait again

It wasn’t worth the risk playing him in the first place, foolishness.
