MATCH QUOTES

*Villa Assistant ManagerJohn Terry* *Thursday 24 September 2020* "It was important for him [Traore] to get off to a great start. "He hasn't played in a while. So to get the goal and top it off was good. "He was someone at Chelsea who was very hungry. He went away from the Premier League but he's always had that desire to come back and prove himself. "He's got that opportunity now at Aston Villa and personally and professionally we're delighted to have him."
