Ezri Konsa has sent a message to Ross Barkley on Twitter after Aston Villa posted a ‘brutal’ video of the pair in training.

The clip in question shows the on-loan Chelsea maestro throwing a snowball at Konsa’s face, on a snowy day in the Midlands.

In response to Villa’s tweet, the £12 million signing from Brentford posted the following tweet aimed at Barkley.

It isn’t the first time that Barkley and Konsa have interacted on Twitter.

After WhoScored posted a tweet revealing that the England Under-21 centre-back was yet to be dribbled past this term, the former Everton man hit back.

Barkley jokingly threatened to release footage disproving that claim, in a playful attempt to discredit Konsa of his achievement.

It’s good to see the two acting playfully, amid a fantastic time for the Villans.

Judging by the Premier League table right now, the Villans have a real shot at qualifying for the Champions League this season.

All they need to do now is take advantage of their games in hand, and keep up the same level of intensity as they have done so far this season.
