Very well rated at Bodymoor Heath, O’hare was a regular at the training sessions of the first team of Smith during the pre-season last summer, but it was absolutely not involved when the real things started in August.
At the age of 22, O’hare is in need of soccer regular to continue his progress. And what are the comments of the CEO Christian Purslow in February, which suggested that his future at the Villa could be dark.
Purslow has hinted that if the players reached their early twenties and were not in the first team, the academy fails.
“The team is under 23 years of age is under the academy, and you made an interesting comment about seeing young people of 16 and 17 years in the U23 team, now it is the test of acid of the programme,” he said.
“Frankly, I’m going to be brutal, the young 22-year-old play in a team of under 23 years of age means that your system does not work. This means that your system has failed because the football players of 22 years of Aston Villa should be part of the first team.
“The ultimate goal is to populate the team under 23 years old with 11 young people of 16, 17 and 18 years old, so I know it works. And it will take years, not months. We need to be more many to recruit the best eight years, nine years, 10 years, 11 years, 12 years, 14, 16, one per year which makes it and gets a professional contract at 16 years old.
“I want this player. We have one at the moment, probably the best of 16 years in England, Carney (Chukwuemeka). Absolutely no debate, he leaves for the U23. This is what you want with your young people 16 years of age. Not people who are not quite their entry in the first team, but who remain under contract because this is not at all the case. ”
O’hare is leaving Villa after having played four times in the league. His impressive performances have won admirers, but his imminent departure shows that the bar has been raised to Bodymoor Heath.
