Aston Villa team bus suffers ‘significant damage’ after attack on exit from Burnley

Concerning news surrounding the aftermath of Aston Villa’s Premier League meeting with Burnley has come to the fore on Sunday evening.

Unai Emery’s troops, of course, marked their return to action a short time ago.

Fresh off a morale-boosting bounce-back victory over Everton on matchday two, Villa made the trip to Turf Moor, for a meeting with the aforementioned Burnley.

And, when all was said and done, the Claret and Blue made it two wins on the spin, Moussa Diaby adding to Matty Cash’s early double en route to an eventual 3-1 result.

As alluded to above, though, an otherwise fine day’s work for Aston Villa was spoiled significantly on the back of the full-time whistle in Lancashire.

This came as Emery’s squad embarked on their departure from Turf Moor.

As revealed by Jacob Tanswell of The Athletic, the Villans’ team coach was subjected to an attack, by way of a brick.

The bus’ front window, it is understood, suffered ‘significant damage’, with it currently unclear whether any on board suffered injuries.

Footage of the incident, captured from the coach itself, has since been passed on to local police.
