Award for Petrov

Published Add your comment

Aston Villa skipper Stiliyan Petrov, who is currently sidelined because of acute leukaemia, has been voted the club's players' player of the year.

The Bulgarian international enjoyed a fine season before being diagnosed with the illness last month and he is currently undergoing treatment.

Petrov did not attend the awards ceremony at Villa Park on Monday night, but said in a video message: "Sorry I can't be with you but I've got a little issue I need to fight. I hope you haven't given me this award because of my situation. I thought I had a quite okay season!"
