Aston Villa: Fans blast Pepe Reina for error against Leicester City

Aston Villa: Fans blast Pepe Reina for error against Leicester City - Aston Villa

A lot of Aston Villa fans are annoyed with January signing Pepe Reina after his error led to Leicester City’s first goal in their 4-0 victory last night.

Five minutes before half-time, Mark Albrighton aimed a long ball at Harvey Barnes, which Reina thought he could run out and claim, but the young English midfielder tapped it past Reina and scored.

At such a crucial point in the game where the tie was a stalemate and with Villa currently sitting in 19th, errors like the one last night can just not be happening. The Spanish goalkeeper is perhaps best known for his time at Liverpool, where he made 394 appearances and kept 177 clean sheets during his eight seasons at the club (Transfermarkt) but his experience counted for nothing there as he was caught out.

Villa’s next few games are very difficult, with the side play Wolves, Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United across the rest of March and April, and if their goalkeeper is making errors like that, there will surely be no way that the club can survive the drop.
