Okore says he'd obviously prefer to play - but he still gets a kick out of seeing his pals in action every weekend, including this Saturday at Old Trafford.
He told Villa's website: "I watch all the games. I enjoy seeing the boys play in the matches. I see every game.
"I must admit I'd rather play. But I don't hate it on the sidelines because I can't do anything about my injury now other than to work hard - and I know my chance will come. I know why I'm not playing so it's not a problem.
"I love watching the lads every week though, supporting them and willing them to do their best.
"I am like a fan when I watch the boys in action. I am not crazy - but I am excited certainly.
"I am not jumping around too much. But I scream when we score and I get mad when we concede a goal.
"You get emotional because it's your mates and you want it to go the best for them every time.
"I do shout - and I swear a little bit too!
"When we score and win the games, I am delighted for the players, the manager and the fans. It's a really great feeling for everyone associated with the club."
