In an apparent try to leave Aston Villa before the transfer deadline, Frederic Guilbert wrote on Twitter, “Here we go again for the longest week of the 12 months.”
The 27-year-old was mostly ignored by Steven Gerrard through the preseason, and he hasn’t been included in a single matchday team for the following season.
Guilbert participated in the primary preseason game for Villa in Australia, but he only received 45 minutes of playing time for Gerrard there, and he hasn’t played since in senior colors.
He has been playing on loan in France for the past two seasons, and considering what Gerrard thinks of the player, it is obvious that his profession lies elsewhere.
The best-back has reportedly been practising with the reserves ahead of Thursday’s deadline, and it has been reported that Villa has lowered their asking price for him.
“Here we go again for the longest week of the 12 months,” said Guilbert.
After his team’s 1-0 loss to West Ham United on Sunday, the fans are simply not having Gerrard as their manager. On the pace he’s going, he’ll leave the Villa exit door before Guilbert.
Whether Guilbert is competent or not, one thing is definite: he deserved higher respect than what he has been receiving currently.
The identical may very well be said for El Ghazi, a player who assisted Villa in getting promoted but can also be a former star who trains with the young players.
In any case, with Gerrard under intense pressure, it should be intriguing to look at how much money Villa spends on incomings over the following few days and who leaves.
