Aston Villa fans believe that Birkir Bjarnason’s celebration after scoring against Wolverhampton Wanderers shows his frustrations with Steve Bruce.
Bjarnason belted in Villa’s fourth goal of the game against Wolves, and celebrated by lashing the ball into the back of the empty net.
The Icelandic international looked more angry than joyous after finding the back of the net.
And Villa fans feel that Bjarnason’s celebration was showing his frustrations, after being dropped from Bruce’s starting line-up recently.
Anyone else think Birkir's body language (not celebrating his goal, walking straight off after the game) shows a man hacked off with being dropped after some good performances?— Mark Smith 阿斯顿维拉 (@smithy1874) March 11, 2018
Saying that, I think he'll start on Tuesday instead of Jedi #avfc #UTV
He has a point though was playing well at DM then dropped body language said it all— The Villa Villain (@UTV31) March 12, 2018
I thought the same when I watched it back. I think it was a combination of being the fourth goal in a game and his general frustrations. I thought he should have started yesterday but then Jedi was fantastic.— Michael Nott (@BillBones84) March 11, 2018
At least he gets on the bench and gets some mins game time unlike Onomah Green O’hare Breen RHM. As good as he has been (and I love him) he needs realise it’s a squad game who need to be happy with Bruce’s decisions. Loved his goal though. Bjarnason Jedi Whelan in that order imo— ClaretandBlueB6 (@dpwhite48) March 11, 2018
Yeah I noticed that. He did say he was close to leaving in January but stayed because he started to enjoy it and get game time. I completely understand his frustration.. but I also understand SB view— Haroon (@heroicpaw) March 11, 2018
Bjarnason was in great form before being taken out of Villa’s team three games ago.
The midfielder has played under 30 minutes in Bruce’s side’s last three matches, but he could be set for an even lengthier spell on the sidelines.
Villa have won their last three matches, so Bruce will be loathed to make too many alterations to his starting line-up.
Villa are next in action later this evening, when they take on Queens Park Rangers.
