Stiliyan Petrov has told the Daily Record that the best is yet to come for Villa. Phew, that is a relief!

Petrov joined at the end of the summer transfer window last year and after a dazzling debut at West Ham, seemed to fade. However if he is now fit, up to speed and ready for the rigours of the Premeriership, we could have a gem. Anymore of the anonymous performances of last season though, and questions are bound to be asked, he wasn’t exactly cheap at around £8million and Celtic fans appear to agree that he is a very in-and-out of form type of player.

The 28-year-old Bulgarian international said:

‘I have a clear head now and things have calmed down. When I first came here I had a lot of things in my head. There was the move from Celtic, the fall-out with the national team coach and my wife was expecting our baby son so a lot of things came all at once.’

‘The Bulgaria incident was a big thing for me, as was the move from Parkhead, and all these things were going through my mind so I wasn’t really focused – everything was happening. But I’ve had a great summer, spending time with friends and family and I’m working really hard and I’m looking forward to my football.’

Adding, ‘I’m at Aston Villa to help my team-mates and make the fans happy – that’s the main thing. Every player tries to be consistent and that’s what I try to do but if I’m going to show it, then we’ll show it as a team as well.’

  • Sounds like he has had a lot of the same problems that JPA had when he first arrived. Hopefully Petrov can replicate JPA’s 2nd season!

  • I really think Petrov will do better this season I mean he has a house now and has gone through pre season with Villa this year will be different

  • i think he will build up a solid partnership between reo-coker, and get forward more which is what he was good at at cetic alongside lennon

  • Looked good on tour, hopefully that was a sign of great things to come this season. He’s a quality footballer, of that there’s little doubt, and I still believe that he performed far better last season than many were prepared to give him credit for.

  • Looked very good tonight, he,s settled in and think he might surprise some fans next year.

  • Lets be honest it has to get better this season or he just as well pack his bags and walk back to the snow filled two team league up north.

  • Thought he did the business against Inter on Saturday also. He could very well become an integral part of one of our strongest midfield in years. Its certainly looking promising.
