Roy Aitken Fit & Raring To Go
Former Aston Villa assistant manager Roy Aitken is ready to return to football after fully recovering from a major operation to remove a tumour in the summer.
Aitken said: 'I feel absolutely fine, great in fact. I was given a 12-week rehabilitation programme after the operation but I couldn't take it because of what happened at Villa. I came back to work after six which may not have been ideal but it's now been 14 weeks and I am feeling strong again. I've been given the all-clear by the specialist.'
'I wanted to leave Villa on the best possible terms. I saw them play against Reading and Newcastle. I wanted to make sure that I could always go back and watch games from the directors' box and enjoy games.'
Well, the lady that sits behind me at the Villa is certainly missing Roy as he always used to wave to her and she'd reciprocate with a blush!!
Aitken added that he is now wanting to get back into the game '...in a managerial capacity, or as a first-team coach.'
