Aston Villa fans react on Twitter to Jordan Amavi's season-ending injury; suggest re-call for Joe Bennett

The recent Aston Villa arrival will not play again this season.

As confirmed on the club’s official website on Sunday morning, Aston Villa full-back Jordan Amavi has been ruled out for the rest of the season.

The 21-year-old signed for Villa in the summer but after just 12 appearances for his new club he suffered a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee while playing for France’s under-21s last week.

The news will come as a huge blow to new Villa boss Remi Garde, who will have known the left-back from his time managing in France and who restored him to the Villa starting line-up for his first match in charge against Manchester City last weekend.

Amavi joined Villa from Ligue 1 club Nice, where he played 60 matches, and he wasted little time showing what he is capable of, providing three assists for his new side to date.

At just 21 he was always going to have dips in form and take time to learn how to defend effectively in the Premier League but he was certainly heading in the right direction prior to his setback.

Following the news we took to Twitter to see what Villa fans thought of Amavi’s injury and you can read a selection of what we found below:
