This was just the last happy step for Konsa, who, when asked if anything surprised him after joining Villa, told avfc.co.uk, "How big is it!

"It was amazing to see it with my own eyes – on the training ground, in the stadium. And the fans too. Her support has been crazy so far.
"It was unbelievable that so many saw us alone in the preseason – and the support we got in Tottenham was great, too. It's really fantastic to be here. "
