Aston Villa fans have been left frustrated by Douglas Luiz’s latest Instagram update.
Luiz has signed for Villa from Manchester City this summer, but he is still waiting for a work permit.
And it seems that the midfielder is not particularly close to linking up with his Villa teammates currently.
Luiz posted a video of himself training on his own in Brazil, as he awaits clearance for his move to Villa.
And claret and blues fans are annoyed that it is taking so long for Luiz to get full permission to make his move.
Douglas Luiz still being in Brazil, means it is highly unlikely he will be involved in our opening fixtures. #AVFC— Purslow's Pursestrings (@AVFCTransTweet) July 31, 2019
Luiz still in Brazil then.. how long do work permits take?? Would of liked him integrated with the squad sooner ♂️#avfc— Jay Lawrie (@jaylawrie88) July 31, 2019
Surely not?— Harry Johnson (@avfc_johnson) July 31, 2019
Wesley came in just over two weeks after the deal was done, Luiz joined a week ago.— Daniel Leonidas (@disdainfullyme) July 31, 2019
FFS not going to get many days training before spurs— JB (@JB34492719) July 31, 2019
Very bad news. Hourihane is glaring weak link at CDM. Further forward he’s fine, but in the Prem I have little faith in his defensive ability— I’m Hard 4 Aston Villa (@Hard4AstonVilla) July 31, 2019
Luiz now looks unlikely to start in Villa’s first Premier League games, as he will have minimal time training with his new teammates.
It could be that Dean Smith is forced to start with Conor Hourihane in Villa’s first game of the season, which comes against Tottenham Hotspur in two weekends’ time.
