Aston Villa fans praise Xia for his dedication to the club

Football club owners can sometimes clash with fans, but Aston Villa’s chief Tony Xia is well-liked by the outfit’s following.

The club dropped into the Championship under his term, but the Chinese businessman’s regular interaction with supporters on social media has given him brownie points.

Last season, the team failed to launch a serious challenge for Premier League promotion, but in the early stages of this campaign, things are going well.

Steve Bruce’s men overcame a three-game winless run to avoid defeat in eight matches on the trot.

In their last four outings, the club won two, drew one and lost the other, which has left them fifth in the standings, five points adrift of the automatic promotion places.

On Friday, Xia took to Twitter to inform the fans that he will be attending upcoming home matches against Sunderland and Ipswich Town.

As well as that, he is invited one supporter to watch the contest with him.

As expected, the reaction to his tweet was positive.
