Philippe Senderos enjoyed a fine start to the 2014-15 - but by the end of the campaign it will have gone down as one to forget.

Senderos joined Villa from Valencia in June 2014 and then headed off to the World Cup with Switzerland.

The Geneva-born 30-year-old impressed many with his pre-season performances in claret and blue - none more so than in the 0-0 home friendly with Parma.

The former Arsenal and Fulham man began the term strongly, starting the first eight games as Villa surged up the top-flight table.

But a troublesome thigh injury meant that he didn't start another game throughout the campaign.

He came on as a sub in the brave 0-0 draw with West Ham at Upton Park.

Boss Paul Lambert was left seething after seeing Senderos re-injure his calf while away with Switzerland after playing only six minutes against the Hammers.

Senderos was then out for four months before taking up a place on the bench under new boss Tim Sherwood for a selection of games in the closing weeks of the season.

Senderos emerged through the youth system at Swiss club Servette before he agreed to join Arsenal in December 2002.

In 117 appearances for the Gunners, he won an FA Cup medal in 2005, scored four goals and spent loan spells at AC Milan and Everton before joining Fulham in 2010, making 68 appearances for the Craven Cottage team.

He then headed to the Mestalla and followed it with a move to B6.
