The Czech striker had a game to forget.
Aston Villa continued what has been a little spell of unbeaten form in the local derby with West Brom yesterday. The basement club drew 0-0 with The Baggies in a game which was fairly unenjoyable to watch.
Villa did not carry much of a goal threat for most of the game and with Libor Kozak up top that is no surprise.
The Czech Republic international has recently been brought back into contention at Villa Park as he certainly puts in more effort than Rudy Gestede does.
He previously looked to be on his way out of the club after months of inactivity - with Celtic heavily linked with his potential signature.
However he is a limited player. His first touch is poor and he lacks the pace necessary to be a striker in the Premier League.
He tries his best, of that there seems to be no doubt. However, his best is alarmingly not good enough.
Saying all that he did not exactly get any real support from his team-mates throughout the game and anybody would have struggled to find the back of the net in a Villa shirt yesterday.
Here is how the Villa fans reacted on Twitter...
Kozak showing why he was left out for half a season today. #avfc— Graham G (@jambonvilla) January 23, 2016
Stop passing to Kozak in his feet. He’s got a rubbish first touch. Hooray he’s subbed off. #AVFC— VanCityVilla (@VanCityVilla) January 23, 2016
#avfc this is why the last three managers didn't play Kozak— Lucas (@sanctuaryvilla) January 23, 2016
Kozak might not get you many goals, but he works far harder than Gestede or Agbonlahor #avfc— Callum Gurr (@callumgurr) January 23, 2016
Libor Kozak should be deported to the moon— lew (@lew_clamp) January 24, 2016
@shelley_ozzy Kozak bless him isn't the answer and Gestede getting injured might force their hand I think they do not want to spend really— Nigel Moore ⚽️ (@Moorski7) January 24, 2016
Kozak - 4 : breaks into the first team. Ruins his chance. Awful. Couldn't hold up the ball. Didn't have a shot. Waste of space for today— Charlie Cox (@charlie_cox6) January 23, 2016
