Villa fullback Bacuna: I think I'm proving myself
Bacuna has featured in three of Villa's four competitive matches since arriving from Groningen in the summer.
"I came here to get some minutes and to show myself and to be part of the team," he told Villa's website. "When you are a new lad you have to come in and prove yourself.
"But I think I've done a good job so far. I work hard every day and I hope I will carry on getting my chances.
"The manager sees something and it is good for you as a player when the manager recognises something. I will keep working hard and keep showing myself."
