Aston Villa Player Gives Outstanding Response To An Apology From Paul McGrath

Aston Villa Player Gives Outstanding Response To An Apology From Paul McGrath

Paul McGrath caused a bit of a stir amongst Aston Villa fans with his reactionary tweets as Aston Villa were beaten 2-1 away to Nottingham Forest on Saturday evening.

Jonathan Kodjia gave Villa the lead in the match, but was criticised for not passing to Scott Hogan on a number of occasions when the (possibly) Irish striker found himself in scoring positions following a number of good runs.

And few critics were as vocal as Ireland and Villa legend Paul McGrath, who took to twitter to let the world know that if the Ivory Coast international wants to become a top player, he needs to work harder for the team.

McGrath seemed to regret the personal nature of his criticism, so again on Monday he issued an apology to Kodjia, despite the fact that many Aston Villa fans agreed with him.

The man in question was alerted to the apology, but was quick to play it down, insisting that 'God' was entitled to his opinion for being a club legend.

That is great to see from Jonathan Kodjia. Referring to McGrath as 'God' and 'legend', it's clear that he brushed up on his Aston Villa history before joining the club.

McGrath's argument was that goals alone are not enough, and although Kodjia has provided 10 goals so far this season, he does not contribute enough to the team as a whole.

Many of the club's fans agreed with McGrath and replied to an article publicising the Irishman's article to make that clear.

It's always nice to see how much love the Villa fans have for McGrath.
