Lambert focuses on football

Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert has said that he is not concerned with the club’s off-field issues for the time being and is only focused on grabbing three points this weekend, Sky Sports reports.

Pending an internal investigation, Aston Villa’s assistant manager Ian Culverhouse and head of football operations Gary Karsa have been suspended with no official reason yet given.


Despite the in-house incident, Lambert has turned his attention firmly to his side’s match this Saturday as they look to secure Premier League safety.


"Forget about the rest of it, my main focus is to prepare for the game, to go and get the lads ready as best as we can," said Lambert.


"We'll try and get the supporters behind us, get everyone positive and try to win a game. That's my job to try and do.


"(One more win) and we'll be in touching distance (of safety). We always say to the lads to be positive no matter what, we don't talk about being negative.


Lambert looked to have pulled Villa to safety earlier in the season after a 1-0 victory over Chelsea and looked to be able to relax.


However after failing to grab any points out of the last four matches they are wary of the drop lurking just beneath them.


"After the Chelsea game everybody thought 'great, no problem', nobody foresaw the last four games," continued Lambert.


"After Chelsea we were sitting with feet up and all of a sudden, four games later, you've got a bit more to do to get over the line.


"It (complacency) never came from ourselves, as a group or as a team. Outside people, pundits and all that, thought Aston Villa were totally safe but I've never given that implication. We know that now is the time to win a game."
