Marc Albrighton expresses his frustration at the way that his career has gone since making his debut.

Aston Villa winger Marc Albrighton has admitted that he has been left disappointed by the fact that his career has seemingly stalled.

The 22-year-old English youth international made an instant impression on many pundits during his debut season back in 2009.

However, a succession of injuries has seen the attacker drift in and out of the Villa starting lineup in recent years - something that has been a source of frustration for him.

"Someone like Raheem Sterling has had a fantastic start with Liverpool and getting his just desserts. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, too, is progressing great," Albrighton told the Express & Star. Yes, I've been held back and that could have been me.

"But I've got plenty of years left in me and it starts now, putting in a good season and perhaps that notice might come."

Albrighton joined Villa as a trainee in 1998.
