Aston Villa: Fans respond to Matija Sarkic’s comments about lack of game-time - Aston Villa

Aston Villa goalkeeper Matija Sarkic’s comments on his future at the Midlands club have prompted a reaction from fans via Twitter account @villareport.

The 22-year-old has struggled to gain a chance with Villa since arriving from Belgian side Anderlecht in 2015, having had four loan spells away from the club with the likes of Wigan Athletic, Stratford Town, Havant & Waterlooville and Livingston.

Having spent the first six months of the 2019/20 season with the latter in the Scottish Premiership, Sarkic was recalled by Villa when Heaton picked up a season-ending injury against Burnley. However, the arrival of Pepe Reina scuppered the Montenegro international’s chances of playing, with the former Liverpool ‘keeper starting in the Premier League for Dean Smith’s side.

With the youngster’s contract set to expire this coming summer, he has been speaking with Montenegrin media outlet Vijesti, saying he is now focused on finding first team football elsewhere.

Discussing his time at Villa this season, Sarkic also discussed his return to the club from his loan spell in Scotland with his quotes being shared by @villareport.

The youngster’s comments sparked a reaction from plenty of Villa fans, some of whom felt he was feeling ‘bitter’ about his chances at the club whilst others said they believed he could become a key player at Villa Park:
