<p><p><p><p>Stiliyan Petrov may in fact lead Aston Villa out for the League Cup final if they beat Bradford City in the semi-final Tuesday. Petrov’s overall health has massively improved over the last couple of months and he has now entered remission. Also, Petrov has begun attending more matches at Villa Park. Shay Given gave an interview and talked a little bit about Petrov and whether or not he can feature in the final. <blockquote><p>”It would be up to the manager [Paul Lambert] who leads us out and it would also depend on Stan”, Given said. “He is still going through some difficult treatments. One day he is up, one day he is down. But the lads would love it if he could and it would be great for Stan.” <p>”It was fantastic to see Stan and it gave everyone a huge lift,” Given said. “He is a real fighter and a great guy. He is still a joker and still has a laugh with the lads. It’s great that he has still got his sense of humour. We know we are in a relegation battle in the league but to see Stan fighting is really inspirational. It puts everything in perspective. <p>So will he be back? Will it be a positive thing? Would it help the team win? <p>I don’t think he will come back this quickly but the most important thing is his health and then whether or not he can feature for Villa again. It would be great to see him in the Villa shirt again because I think that his experience and his leadership are what’s missing in our midfield; but I think that the League Cup maybe too soon.
