Speaking to talkSPORT the giant striker said Aston Villa fans should be realistic and expect a season of struggle.
"It is going to be a long, long season for Villa, just like last year. I can't see where they are going to get the goals from.
"They are playing young lads, who are just not experienced in playing a full Premier League season, with the demands that come with it."
