Aston Villa fans react as Jonathan Kodjia scores at AFCON

Aston Villa’s inconsistent attacker bagged the winner in a 1-0 win over South Africa.

Aston Villa striker Jonathan Kodjia has certainly been in fine form during pre-season. The frontman is currently with the Ivory Coast national team for the AFCON tournament.

The Ivory Coast won their opening game of the competition against South Africa last night. The 1-0 result came courtesy of a goal from the Aston Villa forward.

This followed a 4-1 friendly win last week. Kodjia scored again in that game, equalising in an eventual 4-1 win for The Elephants.

Aston Villa fans have been discussing the form of Kodjia so far this summer on Twitter. His future at Villa Park has often been called into question in recent months.

Kodjia signed from Bristol City for £11 million (BBC Sport) in 2016 and has been a big player for the club since.

However, the 29-year-old has just one year left on his current Aston Villa deal. Kodjia was also in and out of the Aston Villa side after the arrival of Dean Smith. Indeed, he remained on the bench as Aston Villa won the play-off final in Wembley.

With Aston Villa looking to finalise the arrival of Wesley Moraes this summer, many have suggested Kodjia’s future at Aston Villa could be in doubt.

So there is certainly some belief among fans that Kodjia perhaps could be a sleeper hit in the Premier League next season. Others, however, believe success at AFCON should only help Aston Villa get the best deal possible for the divisive frontman.

Here is some of the best reaction from Aston Villa fans on Twitter…
