The Laursen Return

The Laursen Return

Villa reserves beat Chasetown 3-0 last night thanks to goals from Sam Williams, Danny MacDonald and Stephen O'Halloran.

Even better, Martin Laursen made a successful comeback from injury and played for 45 minutes.

The 29-year-old Denmark international, who joined Villa from AC Milan two seasons ago, has seen his time at Villa Park ruined by injuries, but despite a series of career threatening set-backs, he kept fighting.

Laursen said: 'It's been hard work and it's been tough but I'm sure it was the right decision for me to stay away. It would have been depressing to watch my team-mates training every day and not being able to participate but it's good now and I'm feeling good.'
The central defender will now join the squad in the pre-season trips to Holland and Germany which starts this weekend.

Be nice when they return if this takeover situation has been resolved one way or the other, this uncertainty has to effect them and it is killing us fans!!!

Hope he has kept his speed. Best defender ive seen for years. Sweeping up behind Mellberg, great in the air too. If fit i think he and Cahill would be great.

was he quick to begin with? I remember that he was good positioning but his pace let him down, but then again it was a very long time ago i last saw him play. Mellberg and Cahill for me.

If he can stay fit, him and Mellberg could forge a great partnership and we can break Cahil in a little more gently.

4th choice for me now, even when fit. He has a lot of hard work to do to justify a place in the starting XI after 2 years of milking the club dry.
