Aston Villa striker Gabby Agbonlahor has shared an emotional message with his fans on Instagram after he scored the winner in their 1-0 derby win against Birmingham City.
Harry Redknapp took charge of relegation threatened Birmingham City for the first time as they took a short trip across Birmingham to play Aston Villa at Villa Park.
The game was decided by long serving Aston Villa striker Gabby Agbonlahor, who reacted quickest to a loose ball in the area after a goalmouth scramble.
Agbonlahor shared his thoughts with fans on Instagram after the game, talking about how tough the past few years have been for him.
“The whole team knew how much this game meant to Aston Villa fans and we got the win for you all.
“On a personal note is been a bad few years for me on the pitch but I’m only looking forward now to many more more games for this great club.”
The 30-year-old broke a longstanding goal drought with the winner in the Second City derby and that was not his first strike against Birmingham.
Accompanied with his emotional message, he posted a video compilation of all his goals against the Blues.
At the end of his message, he added:
“Sunday was my favourite goal in all my derby games.”
