Kent Nielsen Q&A.

Get your questions in for exclusive Kent Nielsen Q&A: #AskKent


Villa's Cult Heroes feature continues this month with an exclusive Q&A with former star defender Kent Nielsen.

Each month a claret and blue icon - player, former player or celebrity fan - will be put forward for questioning.

Fans will be able to send in their teasers for the star name using Twitter, with questions collected together under the specific hashtag for that month.

The most interesting posers will be put to the guest and the answers will be posted on AVFC.co.uk soon after.

First up was popular former left-back Wilfred Bouma, who endeared himself to the Villa family with his whole-hearted performances.

Then it was John Gregory, who steered the club to upper echelon finishes during his four-year tenure.

Now we have Danish ace Nielsen, who joined Villa from Brondby in 1989.

He really came into his own as part of a three-man central defensive unit, also including Paul McGrath and Derek Mountfield.

The trio played an integral role as Villa mounted a strong title challenge, eventually finishing runners-up to Liverpool.

That achievement earned Villa UEFA Cup qualification the following season and in October 1990 Nielsen enjoyed his finest moment as a Villa player, scoring with a stunning volley from outside the area in a 2-0 victory over Inter Milan.

Get your questions in now via the #AskKent hashtag.

Deadline is Monday October 1 and his answers will be posted here on Wednesday October 3.
