Aston Villa: Fans react to Hendrie’s Sarr comments

Aston Villa: Fans react to Hendrie’s Sarr comments - Aston Villa

Plenty of Aston Villa fans have been reacting to transfer comments from former midfielder Lee Hendrie, who tipped the club to move for Watford winger Ismaila Sarr this summer.

The 23-year-old has starred for the Hornets this season in the Championship, scoring 10 goals and registering 10 assists in the second-tier.

Sarr, valued at £18m by Transfermarkt, has played all across the front line this season, with his main position at Vicarage Road out on the right-hand side.

Who has been your Villa player of the season?









Hendrie, talking to This is Futbol, cited by Birmingham Live, staked his claim for Dean Smith and sporting director Johan Lange to look at the Senegal international over the coming months.

“I think he’s a fabulous player, I really do. He’s a young man still learning his trade, very raw. I was a bit disappointed with him this season, at the start of the season.

“I felt that maybe he had possibly sulked at the situation that he wasn’t able to go to Liverpool or actually be back playing in the Premier League and he had to stay at Watford. And it took some time for the penny to drop and he is now in great form, scoring goals, creating.

“Yes, he’s a player that certainly brings that element of attack and forward threat. He’d certainly fit the bill for Dean Smith’s side because that’s the sort of formation he plays with, a sort of three with two wide men. So, yeah, he’d be a great addition to the football club.”

“Ismaila Sarr, Michael Olise and Rico Henry are three players I would be happy with for starters. Desperately need a strong midfield enforcer too.”
