Philippe Senderos joined the Premier League side Aston Villa back in June of 2014 and when the transfer was officially complete, Paul Lambert stated that the Swiss defender was going to be a good addition to the team but it doesn’t seem like it as Senderos has barely even been able to play a large amount of matches due to injuries which has kept him out of the playing grounds.
After having gone through a string of injuries, Aston Villa is now prepared to release Senderos in the winter transfer window as the manager of the English club has lost their patience and faith with the Swiss defender who simply couldn’t stand out since arriving to the Premier League club.
Even though Philippe Senderos has been struggling with successive injuries, reports have already been emerging claiming that there is a team which is interested in signing the Swiss defender after he gets released by the Premier League side.
FC Zurich is believed to be preparing an offer for Senderos as the Swiss club wants to bring the experienced defender back to his homeland.
Keeping hold of Philippe Senderos for a longer period of time is a risky thing to do for Aston Villa as they are located in the bottom spots of the Premier League and can’t afford any slip ups. The manager of the team has to put in the matches, the players who are performing at their best and not someone who is being plagued with injuries and might make mistakes which could potentially cost the team vital points in their race for survival.
Making a move away from the Premier League club is the best option that Philippe Senderos can exercise as his team has lost faith in him and even if he does recover from his latest injuries, it doesn’t look like he will get playing time in the English club.
