However, he feels that he is back to his best now and he seemed to be enjoying his football once again.

McGinn a key player for Aston Villa and the news of his complete recovery will come as a major boost to the squad and the fans.

McGinn said via Birmingham Mail: “I knew post-lockdown that criticism would come. I wasn’t going out there to play for myself, I was going out there to try and help Villa stay in the league.

“The manager knew that, I knew that and everyone around me knew that I wasn’t going to be anywhere near the player I know I can be.

“The main thing at the time was not for me, it was if I could bring 60-70 per cent of what I can be and maybe pop up with a goal or assist.

“I spent the summer trying to become pain-free because for a long, long time I was in pain. It’s great to be running around without pain, and I’m loving the fact that I’m back to 100 per cent.”
