Aston Villa sprint kings offered some specialist coaching

Olympic gold medallist and 400m world record holder Michael Johnson has offered to take Aston Villa duo Gabriel Agbonlahor and Ashley Young for some specialist sprint training. Johnson saw the duo in action during a recent visit to Villa’s training ground, and has promised he can make the pacy pair even faster.

According to the Daily Star, Villains boss Martin O’Neill is now mulling over whether to take Johnson up on his offer and send the England youngsters to the sprint academy in Dallas over the summer. I am sure there will be a few Premier League defenders hoping he declines!
