‘This a goodbye?’ – These Aston Villa fans react to message from key figure



Aston Villa co-chairman Dr Tony Xia has taken to Twitter to deliver a cryptic message regarding the West Midlands club.

The Chinese businessmen had to relinquish full control of Villa this summer after they lost the play-off final to Fulham in May.

That saw the club suffer serious financial problems, with HMRC serving Villa with a winding up order at one point.

With Xia experiencing major cash flow problems, he had little choice but to seek outside investment to help keep the club afloat and avoid administration.

That came in the form of billionaire pair Wes Edens and Nassef Sawiris, who have given the club a much more stable platform off the pitch.

As well as that, they’ve backed manager Steve Bruce, with new signings Tammy Abraham, Anwar El-Ghazi and Yannick Bolasie out of Villa’s price range until the new investment came in.
