Members of Birmingham City Council’s Cabinet have offered their congratulations to Aston Villa after they booked their place in the League Cup Final after beating Blackburn Rovers last night.

Council Leader Cllr Mike Whitby said: “What a great advert for football. Two teams battling it out, never giving up, full of virtuoso action and goals galore.

“Whoever they face from Manchester, if Villa can keep up their goal scoring form it will put them in good stead for the final. Aston Villa at the heart of Birmingham.”

Cllr Martin Mullaney, Cabinet Member for Leisure, Sport and Culture, added: “It's fantastic news for Villa at a time when football is clearly resurgent in the city.

“Both Villa and Blues are flying high in the Premier League and hopefully Villa can end the season with some silverware.”
