YOURI TIELEMANS has fired a brutal dig towards Aston Villa boss Unai Emery.
However, in the opening four games in the Premier League the midfielder has been limited to appearances off the bench, with Emery preferring Douglas Luiz and Boubacar Kamara.
And this has left Tielemans far from impressed.
Speaking to media during a press conference while on international duty with Belgium, he said: “The situation is not pleasant. I told the manager that I came to Villa to play.
“He understands me, but at the moment, he prefers to play with the two midfielders from last season.”
But Tielemans has revealed he expects his issue to be sorted soon.
He continued: “He told me that soon, there will be a succession of games and I’ll get more playing time.
“I know that answer doesn’t get me anywhere, but what should I do?
“As soon as I get the opportunity, I want to take it. So far, I’ve started once, in the Conference League.”
After the international break, in which Belgium play Azerbaijan and Estonia in EURO 2024 qualifiers, Villa’s campaign in the Conference League will get underway.
Emery’s team are up against AZ Alkmaar, Legia Warsaw and Zrinjski after demolishing Hibernian 8-0 on aggregate in their qualifying play-off for the tournament.
Their next Prem outing sees them host Crystal Palace.
