Aston Villa fans on Twitter have been responding to recently posted comments made by Villa’s Brazilian midfielder Douglas Luiz.  

This comes after Villa fan Twitter account @villareport shared a post on their page relaying comments made by Luiz during a recent interview with Sky Sports.

Who scored Villa's goal in their 1-0 win against Stoke City on the opening day of the 2014/15 Premier League season?

In the interview, Luiz revealed that playing in the Premier League is “one of the best moments” in his career.

He said: “I’m trying to work my hardest and to make sure I enjoy the time I’m having here. I’m obviously very thankful to Aston Villa for their efforts and what they did to have me in the Premier League.”

Luiz added that he will “always be grateful” to the club for signing him.

This post then gathered a lot of replies from Villa fans who were not shy in sharing their thoughts on these latest comments from the midfield man.

Here’s a sample of Villa fans responding to the post:

Should Villa keep or sell Douglas Luiz this summer?

Keep him

Keep him

Sell him

Sell him

The 22-year-old signed to the club back in the previous summer transfer window from fellow Premier League side Manchester City for a fee of £15.12 million according to Transfermarkt.

In his debut season for Villa, Luiz has made a total of 26 appearances for the club in which he has managed to score three goals and provide two assists along the way.

These performances have resulted in Luiz being awarded a current season rating of 6.56/10, making him Villa’s 15th highest-rated player this year (per WhoScored).

Now that these latest comments from Luiz have been doing the rounds on Twitter, a lot of Villa fans took offence to these remarks from the 22-year-old.

However, there was one Villa fan who didn’t seem to take offence with Luiz’s comments and instead decided to praise the midfielder.

It seems a bit strange that the majority of these Villa fans chose to assume that Luiz sees the club as a stepping stone in his career when all he did was thank the club for taking a chance on him and allowing him to play in the Premier League.
