Aston Villa forward Libor Kozak has rejected the chance to move to Scotland and join up with Celtic. It’s been clear that Kozak is not rated by Sherwood and Sherwood is looking to sell or loan Kozak. It’s not clear whether or not the move to Celtic was for a permanent transfer or for a loan deal. But I strongly believe that it was a loan deal because there has been no news regarding an official bid. Apparently Kozak does not want to leave for Scotland and if forced to leave he’d prefer to move to another Premier League club or elsewhere in Europe. Ideally, Kozak wants to stay at Aston Villa and play for the club, especially after missing the entire 2014/15 season with a broken leg. Apparently Sherwood is not happy with Kozak’s fitness which is why he has been limited to a substitute appearance in the League Cup.
What I don’t understand is why Sherwood will not give Kozak a chance. Kozak, arguebaly has more experience than any of our forwards, he was top scorer of Europa League in 2012/13 season. Kozak had a fantastic pre-season and can probably hold the ball better than Gestede and Agbonlahor. The fans who watched the League cup game at the stadium did say that Kozak was significantly better than Jordan Ayew. With the current Villa side boasting more midfield goal scorers than forwards, it’s time to give Kozak a chance.
