Aston Villa: Fans react to Gabby Agbonlahor’s exit claims - Aston Villa

Many Aston Villa fans have mixed reactions to former striker Gabriel Agbonlahor, who has revealed that he rejected offers to leave the club when Roberto Di Matteo was in charge.

Now retired from the game, Birmingham born Agbonlahor spent the majority of his career at Villa Park, except for two short term loan spells with Watford and Sheffield Wednesday.

Progressing through Villa’s youth academy, the speedy striker made his debut for the Claret and Blue in 2006 against Everton at Goodison Park when managed by David O’Leary.

Making a total of 391 appearances for the 1982 European Cup winners, the former England international would net 86 goals in all competitions.

Speaking in a recent interview with BirminghamLive, Agbonlahor, who now often works as a pundit, spoke about Di Matteo trying to move him on to Rangers or Reading and his refusal to leave his boyhood club.

During his time at Villa Park, the striker was an FA Cup and League Cup runner up, whilst also winning the Premier League Player of the Month award in November 2007.

Reacting to Agbonlahor’s comments via Twitter account @villareport, fans shared their feelings on the former frontman, with several suggesting it was his high wage and not loyalty that kept him at the club…
