Villa captain Petrov: Albrighton has big chance

Aston Villa captain Stiliyan Petrov is backing Marc Albrighton to be part of their Premiership campaign this season.

Petrov hopes Albrighton gets more opportunities in the coming season.

He said: "He's getting closer. "He's been working really hard and he's got something that a lot of people don't have.

"He's got pace and he's got a desire to go past people. He's a good boy, we know how good he is and if he keeps progressing like that I hope he has much more first team football."
