Villa Midfielder’s War Of Words With TV Clown Has To Raise A Smile

This is probably one of the strangest (and funniest) pieces of news that Aston Villa fans will read this week, but apparently Douglas Luiz has got himself into a bit of a war of words with some Brazilian mouthpiece called Neto.

Neto is apparently a former Corinthians legend but even then, he only stayed at the club for four years and looking at his record he would make most journeyman footballers look lazy and settled.

In any event, it seems that Neto got himself a little bit worked up over Douglas Luiz’s recent call up back into the Brazilian national side, and taking to his TV show ‘Donos Da Bola’ he put the boot in, believing the current gaffer had made a mistake and should’ve selected someone else.

As suits the modern world, Dougie got wind of this and didn’t welcome his words.

Not to be outdone, Neto hit social media to respond, calling Villa a ‘Portuguesa Santista’ which is apparently a traditional non-league side in Brazil.

It seems the spat has ended here with Neto backing out, but he was expected back on air at some point today/tomorrow, so there might yet be another round.

I find the whole thing quite funny really.

Savo Milosevic arrived at Villa Park in the summer of 1995, which club did we sign him from?

    Well, there’s no football of note for a week or so. Top marks to the pair of them for giving us some entertainment. I make the score two nil to Douglas but it’s only half time.

      Well, it was certainly well timed that’s for sure. Dougie has done himself no harm with fans given his reaction, I’m just waiting patiently for round two.
