Cover-up over Bullying Investigation

In the 2018-2019 season, one may find football players running on and off pitches in new Aston Villa kit. Nevertheless, the club were accused of conceal real conditions about bullying investigation.

Such a claim is a fresh blow to club Aston Villa. In previous interviews with the Guardian, four young football players said they have been bullied by MacDonald and another coach. A young football player and his father published the complaints about then director Sean Kimberley. It’s said that the player’s mental, emotion and physical health got hurt.

The club didn’t take actions against the complaints. However, investigation by Premiere League indeed find something illegitimate and criticized them for incorrect behaviours. In order to respect the fathers willing, we could not publish his name, because the father didn’t like his son to be recognized a victim.

The father of that young footballer said, “The club is a place full of bully.” But no measures have been taken to punish them. Although having left club Aston Villa, the father are not satisfied with the team’s response. In spite of changes of chief executives and management strategy, head of academy is still unchanged. So the father concerned such conditions could not be changed thoroughly. He strongly believed that the club have concealed the reality of bully. Besides, he argued that reality should be looked into for fear of further damage to other youths. The club have to learn from previous events, so that they could perform better in the future.

Two well-respected coaches Stuart Taylor and Gordon Cowans left club Aston Villa while the head one still in its position. Some support staff also left while they are regarded as good people. It’s estimated that final solutions of related problems were kept secret, because they have reached confidential clauses involving them.

In spite of the father’s repeat requirements in getting information about investigation progress, Villa failed to make it. After a short time, he was told that some measures have been taken to solve the problem, and the investigation has shut down.

After the abnormal investigation, the father accused the club in wrong attitudes. The allegations revealed by a player confidentially; Although the young footballer was encouraged to speak up more reality freely. Others seemed receive intimidation.

The father convinced those concerns involving Aston Villa’s bully in academies. By the end of May 2016, the club still hold its rankings in top flight. The league replied the father that they have find some illegitimate behaviours against club Aston Villa and MacDonald.

Aston Villa

The Premiere League had commissioned a review to find evidence about the original inquiry. In the end, they indeed find some evidences. Aston Villa’s processing of these concerns have been reproached extensively, although no individual names have been released.

After the blow, some said that Aston Villa is put under new management and is taking measures to improve such conditions. Although there are evidences that could prove MacDonald’s illegitimate actions, the coach still takes the post at the club. Some resources revealed that inspection only is related to safeguarding of under-18s.

Backbone of Sunderland Squad

He described his job as a blind job for few people’ notice. The footballer similar to Thomas of Bayern Munich to a certain extent. They choose him because of his blind jobs. Those jobs will make other people’s job easier. In the interview with Guardian, Sunderland’s Fabio Borini talked about the sacrificial job under Sam Allardyce.

As the former striker donning Chelsea new kit, Swansea kit, Roma kit and Liverpool kit, Sam Allardyce is usually deployed out wide on the right. There is no doubt that he was assigned defensive missions. In tradition, a forward is often taken as an outfield player. In addition, he is worthy of respecting for his selflessness.

It’s hard to perform well in every aspect. From time to time, one will be forced going backwards rather than going forwards. All one needed to be done is to defend attacks from the opposition and track back instead of appreciating rivals’ playing. It is also the reason why he resists to win goals as many as possible. He also believes that such jobs are responsibilities of his posts. And he has to dedicate to one side a little bit, sacrificing his strengths for his football team.

It’s certainly that his diligence could also be seen as the critical factor to successes in Premiere League games. All his efforts also are helpful to teammates more or less. Resilient but systematic defences guaranteed their wins among the last 11 football matches, remaining the position in the division.

Many may argue that he is not excellent as above remarks for his poor contributions — five goals and two assists in all football games this season. Given his pre-eminent performances, it’s unfair to assess him only by these results. Nevertheless, many an aspect of his match could be analyzed, combining with the results of the football club.

Let’s begin with his exceptional work efficiency. He takes pains to run for the team, tracks information energetically and resolutely to motor back to back defenders whenever they need. What’s more, he faces physical confrontations without a little cowardice. He tides over and combat with his rivals with persistent tenacity and aggression.

At the same time, he also layouts the tone for his teammates in defensive end. Even a skillful attacker also admire his great efforts for his team, too. The veteran with proficient skills in playing football is very important for a football team. Borini also proved that great importance of imaginations in the final is positive. Besides, his ability in dribbling, underestimated aerial skills and potential noticeable characteristics could be improved further. All abilities engaged in running, getting into dangerous positions are all highlights in pitches.

In spite of failing to take the post of attackers this season, Borini still insists that he could write a totally different story next season. He wish he could win more opportunities to play a more attacking role, instead of fighting against relegation.
