Former Aston Villa defender Stephen Warnock said that it was an honor for him to have played for them.
The defender spent four seasons with Villa before signing for Wigan.
He said that Aston Villa is a big club in England and has some great history and that it was a great pleasure for him to have been able to wear their shirt. He is however disappointed that he could not make more appearance for the team as he suffered countless injuries.
He said that he spent four seasons with Aston Villa with mixed fortunes. He said that the first two was very good in terms of performance and playing time, but unfortunately, things changed later on, and he had some frustrating moments as well.
He said that his opening season with the club was a great one where he managed to play regularly in the first team. However he will experience a drop in form in the second season and as a result will spend more time on the bench than on the pitch.
And when he finally found his place back in the team in the third season, he said that Aston Villa was in a relegation battle and that this was the hardest moment of his career.
Stephen Warnock stated however that he does not regret to have played for Villa and this is definitely one of the biggest moment of his career. He said that it is thanks to them that he experienced the Premier League and that he will forever be grateful to the Aston Villa management to have signed him.
Stephen Warnock is currently playing with Wigan Athletic, and he feels that the team has some good potential in there. He admitted that they lack consistency at the moment, but he feels that the club is progressing gradually.
