Thierry Henry shares what is bothering him about Aston Villa's relegation fight

Thierry Henry Two

Thierry Henry is bothered by Aston Villa's lack of commitment in their battle against relegation.

Pundit Theirry Henry has told Sky Sports that he is disappointed with Aston Villa's lack of fight and commitment as they battle against relegation.

Villa have won just three Premier League games this season, and sit eight points adrift of safety heading into tonight's game against Everton.

With 17 defeats this season, Villa have been one of the worst teams in Premier League history, and even sacking Tim Sherwood in favour of Remi Garde earlier this season couldn't change their fortunes.

Relegation to the Championship seems inevitable, and fans are certainly worried that Villa could 'do a Leeds' and end up falling into League One, especially considering that manager Garde has no experience in the Championship, a notoriously difficult division to get out of.

Recent wins over Crystal Palace and Norwich City had given Villa hope, but the 6-0 defeat to Liverpool last month killed off any lingering hopes of survival, and the club's inability to sign any players in January shows what a daunting task lies ahead for Villa.

Now, pundit Thierry Henry has discussed Villa's problems on Sky Sports, suggesting that the main thing that bothers him is how Villa aren't really putting up any sort of a fight against the drop, and should have been looking at how Burnley fought tooth-and-nail to stay up last season.

"They couldn't even attract anyone in the transfer window," said Henry. "So it's going to be a tough one [if they go down]. When you see a team like Burnley going down last year, they were fighting for every game, making sure it was very difficult for everyone, and then you see the way Villa are going down. For me, that's what bothers me - the way they are going down; there is no fight, there is no commitment.

"I've played at Villa Park obviously, and it was always a fight. They always had that fight in them, that's the spirit of the club. Now, they just don't have it," he added.
