Jordan Amavi: Has suffered a cruciate knee ligament injury

Remi Garde admits Jordan Amavi has “some hard times ahead” but the Aston Villa boss will give his current players a chance to step up before dipping into the January transfer market. 

Amavi has been ruled out for the season after suffering a cruciate knee ligament injury while on international duty for France Under-21s.

The left-back has been one of the few bright spots for Villa this term, but new boss Garde will look to find a replacement for the 21-year-old from within his new squad.

Kieran Richardson, Joleon Lescott and Ciaran Clark can all move to full-back, while Garde admits Amavi will find his recovery hard going.

“It’s a big blow for everybody because Jordan has done very well,” Garde told AVTV.

“We cannot do anything else now. He will have surgery and a long recovery. It’s the first time for him.

“I had a chat with him because he’s going to have some hard times ahead.

“As a team we have to react. Some others will have a chance to play and we’ll see if we need someone else in a few months.”

    why are TT admin just posting storys from their main pages onto Your Say? This just takes up additional posts and bumps down actual conversations amongst fans..

    Im also assuming someone at TT got seriously reprimamnded for the way the new site transition was handled? A lack of respect to the Your Say contributers has really bitten TT in the backside. It was Your say and the comments that attracted people to TT not Associated press headlines that we could all google anyway. Its not like TT have any journalists on the ground. I actually like the new Your say but seems so many people dropped off when you updated due to lack of communication on the changes that its going to take years to recover.. a lack of respect to readers has seriously effected the number of contributers and im assuming hits to your site..do you not have a database of all the old contributers you could email to entice back?

    Unfortunately Jim this site has died a death for Villa fans, much like our season. There’s no point me coming on here anymore to hear 2 people’s opinion . I mean, all due respect and it’s not as tho those opinions are worthless but it’s just so empty, and little to bounce off. There are 4 posts a week if we are lucky, we used to get at least 5 a day, minimum! I’m really saddened and I may have to call time on my team talk career.

    i agree – its a shame – especially as we now get instant posts .

    there are about a half dozen posting , people ARE slowly coming back .

    if we stop posting now , it will indeed die out .

    one of the positives of losing every week is the interest in what garde will do about it – for me its what he will do about the defence , and will he recall our loanee’s.

    then there will soon be the transfer window .

    please keep posting , and more may be drawn in .

    You are both right, if people do give up that will be it. The thing is I didn’t post all that much prior to the change but I loved reading everyone’s opinions and view points and many times people could get the point across a lot better than I ever could. I guess it’s not just the old guard but we will get new fans too.

    It’s a shame because there are numbers on this website, look at the Liverpool yoursay, just not many Villans. Obviously there’s a bigger fan base but still, ours isn’t exactly small.

    I thoght we played well against Watford, best performance for a while but stupid errors at the back again. Hutton has that lack of concentration that is to be feared, Richardson, it looks like his legs have gone regardless of position played in. Richards is a sensation, look at that passion when he scored, it really moved me. He’d be in the England squad, were we not where we are.

    a good point by avward (and well put across) – its easy to forget there are lots of people who read these posts but rarely if ever post themselves – maybe a few might try – its quite well behaved at present !
