Albert Adomah hoping to lead Aston Villa dancing back to the Premier League

Albert Adomah is aiming to break down Fulham’s defences and lead Villa on a victory dance back to the Premier League.

The club’s top scorer has regularly entertained supporters with his groovy celebration moves and has promised a special display should Villa beat Fulham at Wembley on Saturday and secure a return to the top flight.

He said: “It is the special AA dance. I turn up, on time!”

Adomah, who netted a career best 14 league goals for Villa this term, is a fan of Strictly Come Dancing.

And he added: “Hopefully, when I retire, one day you might see me on there.

“I am not sure about the sequins. I will wear a man suit. I am not sure about this funny business.

“I like Strictly but I think my moves would be a bit different. I am not sure if you would call it the samba or the tango. I think you might call it the AA dance!”

Villa beat Middlesbrough over two legs to reach Wembley, though Adomah revealed the post-match dressing room celebrations had been muted.

“You have to be cautious,” he said. “You don’t want to get too excited and the next thing you know you face defeat.

“There is not only one team turning up at Wembley. We still have to patient. Hopefully, if we get the victory over Fulham, we can celebrate. I think that is why we were more conservative (in our celebrations) against Middlesbrough.

“If we get this triumph, we can go over the top with excitement.

“It’s two massive teams in the final which is good. It’s going to be a tough game. There’s a lot of expectation on both sides.”
