The Aston Villa fans who are gathered at the bar in The Transfer Tavern this evening are discussing comments made by an agent of one of their players.
The Daily Mirror is reporting comments made by Jores Okore’s agent which state that he believes that the Aston Villa owner Randy Lerner has thrown in the towel.
Nikola Jagerfeld Juric has been left fuming by club officials as he has tried to get information as to whether Okore has a future at the club or not, but this has fallen on deaf ears.
Speaking about the situation, Juric said: “I’ve never tried anything like it. It seems as though the owner has thrown the towel.
“It is simply so irresponsible that you cannot get hold of anyone who has responsibility.
“I have tried for 14 days to create a dialogue. Right now, we know not who manages the club and what they want with Jores in the longer term.”
A defeat for Villa next weekend will condemn the club to Championship football and it will be interesting to see if the club move forward, or they end up further in decline like similar clubs who have dropped from the Premier League.
The Aston Villa fans in The Tavern are not surprised by Juric’s comments and just want Lerner to leave the club so that the club can turn their fortunes around!
