Aston Villa fans slam media team over ‘Apprentice’ piece

During the international break, rather than twiddle their thumbs, football clubs up and down the country tend to produce content to keep their fans interested while the players are away.

Aston Villa have been mocked by their own supporters in the past for posting some creative social media videos and tweets.

On this occasion, the club’s media team decided to tap into the hype of the new series of BBC One’s ‘The Apprentice’ – a show in which contestants compete to become Lord Sugar’s business partner.

The first episode was aired on Wednesday night, and Villa decided to pick out players from the squad who would be viable contenders for the programme.

John Terry, Glenn Whelan, James Chester and Mile Jedinak all featured in the piece, which was published on Villa’sย official website.

Unfortunately, the response was not a positive one, with many fans criticising the club for the Apprentice-themed article.
