Aston Villa

The Villa youngsters certainly have an appetite for battle after another coming together after the final whistle.

Aston Villa’s under-21 side have been involved in a post-match scuffle for the second consecutive match, according to a report in the Birmingham Mail.

The junior Villans have recent history in this department, as tempers frayed in their clash with West Ham United on April 11 sparking a 20-man on-field melee, as reported by the Mirror.

On that occasion, the hosts completed a 3-2 victory over the Hammers and it was another positive result that led to another unpleasant incident.

The youth team completed a 2-1 victory over Swansea City’s under-21 side at the Liberty Stadium on Monday to set up a Premier League Division 2 play-off final against either Arsenal or Blackburn Rovers.

According to the Birmingham Mail, the passion of the Villa youngsters boiled over once again during the celebrations at the full-time whistle.

Khalid Abdo’s wild celebration allegedly kick-started the scuffle after he ran over to the Villa supporters in the stands, with the Swans players taking exception to his gleeful actions.

Both sets of players were reportedly  forced to be separated from the flash point and it soon fizzled out, but it once again demonstrated the passion and desire of the Villa youngsters - attributes absent in the senior team’s performances this term after relegation to the Championship was confirmed on Saturday.
