The Aston Villa ace is really loving life at the moment.
Neil Taylor spoke to reporters about how much he is enjoying his football at Aston Villa, and shared the main reason why he chose to move to Villa Park, as quoted by the Birmingham Mail.
The Villans are preparing for their play-off semi-final clash with West Bromwich Albion on Saturday, and Dean Smith’s side will be full of confidence, having taken 31 points from their final 12 games of the Championship season.
The west Midlands outfit will need all of their important players to rise to the challenge over the next few weeks, and Taylor is certainly one of the more experienced heads in the Villa dressing room.
Taylor, 30, joined Aston Villa from Swansea City in January 2017, and despite initially struggling to establish himself, he is now one of the club’s most important players.
And the 41-capped Wales international told reporters just how big of a club Aston Villa are, as quoted by the Birmingham Mail:
“I am enjoying my football at the moment and that is the main thing. I feel extremely lucky to be at a club like this. The reason I came here is because I always dreamt about playing for a big club. You don’t think you are going to be able to do it in the Premier League unless you join Manchester United or Liverpool. But I am at one now, albeit in the Championship. Hopefully we can get it back to the Premier League.”
Aston Villa fans will be desperate to see their club back in the top flight next season, but they will not be underestimating the Baggies.
Taylor should start on Saturday, and he and his teammates will have to be on their very best form against their Midlands rivals, if they are to make it through to the play-off final.
