Former Aston Villa owner Doug Ellis says he’s too old to return

Ellis can’t believe the state of his old club.

“Dozens of people have approached me and asked me to come back. My answer to them is all is ‘would you come back at 92 years of age?” he said.

“I’d have loved to have come back, but not in its present situation.

“It’s my life. Thirty-five years, just ask my wife she’ll tell you. I’m married to Aston Villa.”
