Former Celtic Midfielder Stan Petrov will NOT be offered a deal with Aston Villa after trying to get back to full fitness with them in pre-season.
The Bulgarian who bravely fought cancer and won has been trying to get back into shape in order to resume his career for Villa but Stan has been told he won’t be offered a playing deal.
Instead, Aston Villa want the inspirational Stan to become part of the backroom team, a role which he took on while battling cancer.
It remains to be seen if Petrov will officially hang up his boots or try to return to the field with another team willing to take a chance on him.
He is a great player, there is no doubt about that but at the age of 37, he may have limited options.
We hope he makes the best decision for himself and his family.
