Albrighton: Gabby leaves me breathless


Marc Albrighton has waxed lyrical about Gabriel Agbonlahor, claiming the Aston Villa forward has the ability to take his breath away.

Agbonlahor has found the net five times in 15 appearances for Villa this season, and continues to play a pivotal role at Villa Park.

The 25-year-old has, though, struggled with both injuries and inconsistency in the past and, as of yet, has failed to realise his potential.

Albrighton, though, seems to think his teammate is on the cusp of something special and will continue to have a huge impact on any potential success for Villa this season.

"He has been unbelievable," the young winger told the official Villa website. "He has always had the talent.

"He has been brilliant in matches but he is incredible in training too. He just pulls things out the bag when you least expect it.

"He will take on three or four players and stick it in the top corner. He takes your breath away with some of the things he does. He's always had that.

"He's getting better every season. I know he struggled to make an impact last term but he had a lot of niggling injuries which had a major say on his season.

"But in general terms he's developing. People used to say the name Gabby Agbonlahor and they'd think 'pace.' But now he's got everything.

"He is strong, he's is a good header of the ball, he's scoring goals, he's getting in the right positions, he's delivering.

"He's absolutely flying. I am sure that will continue."
