Collymore: Why Villa are the perfect club for Scott Sinclair

Stan Collymore feels Aston Villa are perfect for winger Scott Sinclair.

Former Aston Villa star Stan Collymore has revealed his belief via his Bleacher Report column that Scott Sinclair can revitalise his career at his old club.

The club confirmed via their Twitter account earlier today that the winger has completed a move to Villa Park on loan from Manchester City and Collymore believes it’s a good deal for the player and the club.

“He needs regular first-team football, and if he shows the same ability as he had at Swansea where people talked of him as an England international, he can be a success,” wrote Collymore.

“Villa is a good place for Sinclair to go, though, where Tom Cleverley is playing and Fabian Delph has just signed a new contract and Carles Gil looks a good addition.”

Sinclair will get games for Aston Villa because he gives them something different in a wide area.

His pace and skill in possession make him a good player to have bombing forward on the counter attack and Villa can use him to their advantage.

From his point of view it’s a good move because it will allow him to improve personally in a side, which has a number of young and talented players.

He can interact with players at a similar quality level becoming sharper and more focused as he gets more matches under his belt.

He’ll also be laying his games under a demanding manager in Paul Lambert and in front of a very passionate and demanding set of supporters.

If he underperforms, the fans will let him know it and that gives him an extra motivation and goal to strive towards.

Villa have struggled to score goals this season, 11 in the league so far, and Sinclair is a player who can inject more creativity into the team.
