Bouma Enjoying Life At Villa

Bouma Enjoying Life At Villa

Wilfred Bouma says he is flying and enjoying life at Villa.

He told the official site: 'I'm really encouraged by my form. Last season I had a lot of injuries, but I came here to show people I'm a good player. I didn't want to read in the papers I was a flop. I do read the papers and you're always reading that players just come here for the money. That's not the case with me. I'm here to show myself because I know what I'm capable of.'

'It took a little time for me to produce it on the pitch - last season I was a bit homesick for a couple of months, and if you're not feeling right mentally, you can't show your best on the pitch. But Aston Villa is a great club and hopefully I'll be remembered as good for them. The fans are great and I'm having a fantastic time here with my family. They all came over here and I decided to really show what I could do on the pitch and I'm really enjoying it.'

Adding: 'But it can go even better- that's always what you have to keep in the back of your mind so hopefully I can continue this run of performances and improve further. As a left-back, this is the best football I've ever played. But I've never felt so strong or fit either.'

He also explained that he missed the Reading game after picking up a knock on international duty but says he will be fine for the Fulham game on March 3.

We really missed him against Reading. Never thought i'd say that!! Fair play to freddie though he has been excellent recently. Seems to be developing a good understanding with GB.

If Baros had the same attitude as Freddie, he would still be at vp. Well done and more of the same please.

Doing the business, looking the part. Freddie has got his second wind, and is looking every inch the player that someone of his pedigree should.
