Aston Villa have no relegation worries, says Lambert
Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert has claimed that he has not been worried about the prospect of a relegation battle at any point during this season, the Birmingham Mail has reported.
Before Sunday’s 4-1 home win over Norwich City, the West Midlands club had been struggling for form and went into that match just four points above the drop zone, leading some to suggest that they could be in danger.
After struggling against relegation for much of last season, Villa have not entered the bottom three this time around, and Lambert insists that he has always remained positive despite what had been a poor run prior to the game against his former side. “I never really look down,” he said.
“People were saying last week that West Ham were well and truly out of it and all of a sudden we are level with them. We will try to get the next team above us and I never look at it negatively, I always think we can win games.
“We are a young team and we are miles from where we want to be. But we are slowly but surely getting there and if they keep growing and being confident their careers will keep going. They’re a young group and you try to keep them positive, even when there is a drop.”
