Collymore believes that Villa should bring in Emile Heskey to coach Wesley on how to be a target-man in the Premier League.
Villa spent big on Wesley in the summer, but he has struggled in his first two appearances.
And Owen cannot believe that more specialist coaching is not given to forwards in the modern game.
I’m astounded that football continues to be so far behind the times when it comes to specialist coaching. GK’s get individual coaching but outfield players, in general, get coached as a group despite having such contrasting roles.— michael owen (@themichaelowen) August 18, 2019
Villa are relying on Wesley to come good sooner rather than later.
The Brazilian forward has been tasked with leading the line for Dean Smith’s men, but he is yet to get off the mark.
Villa’s only other option, if they do decide to take Wesley out of their team, is to use Jonathan Kodjia or youngster Keinan Davis up top.
Villa are next in action against Everton at Villa Park on Friday evening.
