In an interview with BristolLive, Aston Villa winger Albert Adomah has revealed that he would be open to return to former club Bristol City later in his career.
Speaking after Aston Villa’s clash with Bristol City on Friday night, winger Albert Adomah has admitted that he would be open to move back to Ashton Gate in the future.
Adomah nearly moved away from Aston Villa back to Middlesbrough on loan on deadline day this summer, but ended up staying at Villa Park. The Ghanaian winger spent three years at Boro before switching to Villa in 2016.
The 30-year-old played for Bristol City from 2010 to 2013, making 136 appearances for the Robins, picking up 17 goals and 29 assists in his time at Ashton Gate.
Adomah spoke to BristolLive after the game, saying:
“I want to say thank you to the supporters for showing me their appreciation again,
“I’m honoured they still remember me and it made me a bit speechless to be honest. I think the fans know what I did for the club in the past and I’ve always got a soft spot for those supporters.
“I truly loved my time here at Bristol City and you never know, one day, it might happen again.
“It would be great if it (playing for City) happened again one day, hopefully, but who knows? In football anything could happen.”
“Bristol City gave me the chance to make the big step from League Two to the Championship and I thank (manager at the time) Steve Coppell for that,” he added.
“I’ll never forget him (Coppell) for giving me that chance, even if he only lasted two games. I know he loves wingers and it was a great platform for me.
“There was the disappointment of getting relegated but I loved playing football for the club. My time at Bristol City is right up there in the best time of my career.
