Aston Villa fans react on Twitter to Aleksandar Tonev's Frosinone switch

Bulgaria Flag

The Bulgarian flop has found himself a new team in the Italian top-flight.

Italian side and Serie A new-boys Frosinone today announced the signing of Aston Villa winger Aleksandar Tonev.

Villa snapped up Tonev in 2013 from an impressive stint in Poland with Lech Poznan. He cost Villa, as reported by the Daily Star, an apparent £2.5 million with Villa beating Werder Bremen and Celtic to his signature.

However he has struggled at the club. In his first season in the Midlands he played just 20 times, failed to score and was generally poor throughout his stay.

He became more synonymous with the fact his constant long-range strikes at goal ended up being powerfully sent into the outer atmosphere – rather than into the back of the net.

Last season he was sent out on loan to Celtic. He struggled in Glasgow as well, making headlines for the wrong reasons. He was banned for seven games after being found guilty of racially abusing Shaleum Logan of Aberdeen.

So British football has not been kind to him and as demonstrated on Twitter oupon the announcement of the news, it was more than happy to see him head to Italian football.
