Speaking in an interview with France Football ahead of today’s League Cup final, Aston Villa’s French full-back Frédéric Guilbert discussed the current mood inside the Premier League club.
Aston Villa haven’t won a title since 1996: do the fans make you aware of this & their expectations?
Yes and no. We are in a pretty tricky period in the league (they currently sit 17th). They are not exactly very happy right now, which is totally logical. The fans, I think, would prefer that we avoid relegation than win this cup… We really want to win this final. It is something important in one’s career. If you can put your name in the club’s history books, that’s cool.
