McAllister alarmed by Aston Villa season


Bookmark and Share

Tuesday 08 May 2012

Former Aston Villa assistant manager Gary McAllister has revealed how shocked he has been to watch the problems his former club have been facing this season. McAllister was assistant under Gerard Houllier at Villa Park last season and managed to get Villa into ninth.



Everything has been different this season under new boss Alex McLeish with Villa still not mathematically safe from relegation, although it does look highly unlikely they will be relegated. The loss of Ashley Young and Stewart Downing has affected the squad, according to McAllister, but the former Scottish international admits he has been alarmed at what has been happening.


The 47 year old said: “It’s been quite alarming watching it. Your eye is always taken to your former club, where you have played or worked. I think there was maybe a change of tack from the owners as far as the money that had been spent there in the past compared to what is being spent now”.


McAllister also believes that injuries to key players at crucial times have not helped McLeish and his squad, but the introduction of impressive young players such as Samir Carruthers, Nathan Baker and Eric Lichaj can only bode well for the future.


“They (Villa) are a special club when it comes to producing youngesters. They have a fantastic set-up there and they do bring players through. They are very hard and strict with them, but I think come the time they get to the first team, it stands them in good stead”, the Scotsman said.
