Plenty of Aston Villa fans have been reacting on social media to the club’s post regarding striker Wesley Moraes.
The Brazilian, who suffered a serious knee injury against Burnley on New Year’s Day in 2020, stepped up his recovery by featuring in a behind-closed-doors friendly against West Bromwich Albion at Bodymoor Heath on Friday.
Wesley played 45 minutes of the friendly, the club confirmed, putting on the Villa shirt for the first time in almost 15 months.
Summer exit for Wesley?
Wesley, who cost the club £22.5m back in 2019, has made 22 appearances for Villa, scoring six times and registering one assist.
Should Aston Villa start Wesley?
Villa fans react
This is what these Villa fans had to say in reply to the club’s post on Wesley’s return, with one describing it as ‘brilliant news’.
“This is the content we like to see”
“Get him on the bench for Fulham. I beg”
“Brilliant news. Be like signing a new player“
“Things you love to see! Back playing and back with a smile on his face! Welcome back Big Man!”
