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

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.
