Aston Villa talent Andre Green vows to 'come back better' after ankle injury on Twitter

Villa Park 6

The teenage attacker suffered an ankle problem in training this summer.

Aston Villa boss Tim Sherwood has a good track record when it comes to bringing through top young players, with his history at Tottenham Hotspur showing that.

Last season he gave Jack Grealish more of a chance in the first team than had previously been the case. He also gave Rushian Hepburn-Murphy a first-team debut whilst Andre Green made the ben ch for the final game of the Premier League season.

The 17-year-old attacker is an England under-17 international who made his debut for the Aston Villa under-21 side aged just 15.

This summer he has been with the first-team for pre-season activities, including travelling out to Portugal for a training camp.

Unfortunately he picked up an injury on tour.

Green suffered an ankle injury toward the end of July and was ruled out for the rest of pre-season with his problem.

Today he has Tweeted about his injury trouble and hopes for the upcoming season.

Green is perhaps still a bit young to be in the Villa first-team on a regular basis, but he would have certainly been hoping to be knocking on the door this term.

The teenager is a top talent for the future, but if he can get himself fit he might get some cup action this term as he looks to prove himself in the Villa first-team.
