Famous Everton fan and boxer Tony Bellew hails Bill Kenwright as he shows sympathy for Aston Villa fans

Boxing Gloves

The boxer was in attendance as Everton defeated Aston Villa 3-1 at Villa Park yesterday.

Everton took on Aston Villa last night and the result never really looked in doubt. Ramiro Funes Mori gave Everton the lead before goals from Aaron Lennon and Romelu Lukaku ended the contest. Rudy Gestede's late header proved a mere consolation.

The game at Villa Park also saw a mass walkout from Villa fans on the 74th minute.

One Everton fan in attendance who was not pleased with events unfolding was professional boxer Tony Bellew.

He took to Twitter today, after attending the game last night, to criticise the ownership of the club and show his solidarity to the fans:

His point is clear. Bill Kenwright gets stick from Everton fans at times but his tireless search for fresh investment in the club finally came off last week and the club will hopefully now receive a cash injection in the years to come.

Villa meanwhile appear to be standing still. They are bottom of the league and the way things are going will struggle to return to the Premier League immediately after their impending relegation to the Championship.

Hopefully the future will see a return to something respectable for the Villa faithful. But with the current management structure at the club, that seems unlikely.
