A Villa Return For Berson?
Looks like the proposed move of Aston Villa midfielder Mathieu Berson to Auxerre, where he has been on loan all season, could be on the rocks after the French outfit parted company with their manager Jacques Santini.
His agent, Olivier Jounanneuaux, says:
'We do not know what will happen now with Auxerre. It depends on the new manager and what he wants to do because Mathieu is on a good salary. We know Aston Villa would like to sell him but we have had no news from them about that. For the moment we do not know what is happening. Nobody is telling us anything. It is not an easy situation. But if he has to go back to Aston Villa, then he will.'
So looks like we might have one more midfielder next season. He always looked decent to me, then again, I'm a sugarbag! He did look head and shoulders above some of our team though, he was able to hold the ball up and did the simple things well.
