The manager for the Aston Villa team Steven Gerrard, has given word that Jamaican winger Leon Bailey could be back in training within the next two weeks.
Even though the club is said to have had it in their plans to have Bailey back on the field by February 9 for their game against Leeds, those projections have been pushed back by the former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard who now leads the management of Aston Villa, due to the footballer not training and playing as much under his command.
The coach who spoke to the Birminghammail.co.uk website stated that Bailey had been inactive for 2 months with only a 3 game experience under his leadership. This could be somewhat detrimental to the Jamaican, as already Aston Villa had taken steps to correct their on-field faults, by getting Brazilian footballer Philippe Coutinho on a loan from Barcelona for the season’s remainder and amping up Emiliano Buendia, making it difficult for Leon to pick up exactly where he left off.
Bailey’s skills, however, according to the mentioned website, is essential to Gerrard since he has been using the 4-3-3 formation which would provide room for the player to work his magic.
It was only just last summer that Leon Bailey got transferred to Aston Villa, from Bayern Leverkusen and since then he has not been having the best experience as a player since his debut game was a defeat against Watford, and for most games the team played, the player was injured.
With Gerrard looking to welcome Bailey back to the team in the next two weeks, Aston Villa is looking to up their position in the English Premier League from 11th place, hopefully getting some crucial goals from the young football star that could boost their points up from 26 to get them amongst the top 6 teams of the competition.
Villa’s upcoming matches are very important ones as they cannot afford to lose at this point or make a team with fewer points beat them since they are only 11 points above relegation.
