Aston Villa have been rocked by news that club masseur Alex Butler is “very poorly” in hospital with coronavirus.

Butler's sister Hannah posted a message on social media urging fans to send get well messages and show their support.

Villa's Bodymoor Heath training complex was shut down days ago and players have been keeping fit with specially compiled training schedules.

 

Mr Butler's sister posted the following message on social media: "Big Al needs your get well messages, love and support #avfc fans. Very poorly with coronavirus and waiting on an ITU bed. RTs, likes and any messages for me to show the big man please, let him know we are all behind him."

Get well soon big fella !

He's as popular a figure around the club as there is, the players love him, the staff love him and by all accounts he's very good at what he does. Hope the big fella fights his way through this.

He seems a likeable person, all though I've obviously never met him. But I'm yet to meet a big bastard with a beard that wasn't alright.  

Shite news.

Isn't he fairly young? In his 30s?

An interesting thing here would be how that affects our squad. He must be one of the guys who has the most close contact with all of our players. Assuming you carry the virus for a while we could well have half a squad with corona shortly.

Hopefully he fights through this and can beat it. 38 is no age and we are jinxed as a club in recent times with young tragedies. 

Villa players were training up until last week is a chance a few are infected 😔

He appeared to be a big part of the feel good spirit this time last year. Lots of videos of him and the other physio staff and players having a great time after all those wins.... Really hope he makes a full recovery.

Wasn't he the one with that funny Lipo Fatty / Tuanzebe video last year? Always seems to be very popular with the players. 

Wasn't he also the one in the away end at the sty last year with Elphick? 

Get well soon big fella.

I hope the big man pulls through this, he’s an integral part of the back room staff and big contribution to the team spirit. 
 

This picture sits on the wall of the manager’s room just off the tunnel at Villa Park. It shows how important the staff are for each other. Alex at the back there.
