Aston Villa fans have mixed reaction to Agbonlahor award

Aston Villa revealed on Friday that Gabby Agbonlahor would be receiving a Special Service award ahead of Saturday’s key Championship clash with Derby at Villa Park.

Agbonlahor will be leaving Villa at the end of the season following 12 years of first-team service to the club.

The 31-year-old has made close to 400 appearances for the now Championship outfit – scoring 86 times in the process.

The forward has only made six Championship appearances during the 2017-18 campaign, however, and has not actually been seen in a Villa shirt since the latter stages of 2017.

Agbonlahor’s relationship with the Villa supporters has seriously soured, and there was a mixed reaction to the news that the forward would be receiving an award at Villa Park.

Indeed, whilst many were keen to recognise what the former England international has brought to the club as a whole, there are plenty that will not be honouring him ahead of kickoff against Derby this weekend.
