Bouma on New Contract
Wilfred Bouma is naturally delighted with his new contract, telling the Villa faithful "I will return fitter and stronger than ever."
As reported earlier, Bouma has signed a new two-year extension, with a view for a 3rd season should things go well, despite the long term injury suffered in Villa`s Inter-Two-Bob cup match against Odense before the start of the league season.
Bouma spoke to the official club website, avfc.co.uk:
'I am very happy. I've signed this new contract when I'm still injured so that shows a lot of faith in me. That has given me a real confidence boost.
'I have had a set-back but I want to get back playing again as soon as possible.
'I had to fight to get in the team when I first joined and I am determined to do that again when I come back fit. That's my goal.
'I will return fitter and stronger than ever.'
Looking forward to it Wilf!
