Aston Villa club legend Gabriel Agbonlahor has got fans chatting with his announcement that he will be with them in the Holte End for the Birmingham derby.
Agbonlahor graduated from the club’s academy in 2005 and made 391 appearances for the claret and blue side over the course of his 13-year professional career.
The striker scored 86 times for the Villans and was named captain after Stiliyan Petrov was diagnosed with acute leukaemia, but was gradually phased out of the first team as his form and fitness dwindled.
When his contract was not renewed after the 2017-18 Championship campaign, the 32-year-old’s departure marked an end to a 17-year association with his hometown club.
However, the former striker confirmed he will watch the Birmingham derby when a Villa fan raised the question on his Instagram post.
Replying to the fan that suggested the stand, Agbonlahor said: “I will be.”
These Villa fans certainly liked the news…
Probably still score against them

unfortunately not, we are in the North Stand, probably because Gabby bought up all the tickets. I would like to see his booking history 🙂
