Aston Villa captain Olof Mellberg has said that Villa cannot take next season for granted and says that changes are needed to make sure the clubs fortunes are turned around.
The Sweden international told the official site:
'We'll get nowhere unless we work hard to change things.'
'It's possible to do what teams like Everton have done in recent seasons, but you can't just expect it, talk about it and hope for it to happen. It's just hard work. We've all got to look at the season as a disappointment - not only because of where we finished in the league, but also our performances weren't good enough. I said many times that the league table doesn't lie. There are 38 games, you can be unlucky in a game, but there are 37 games left to put it right. So it doesn't really lie in the end.'
More promisingly - following whispers that he is unhappy and will look for a move after the World Cup - he says:
'I'm more determined than ever to bounce back next season. It's all down to hard work, to try to change things. We can't just go on trying to do the same things, we've got to try to improve, get better and try to change things. Maybe it won't take huge changes, but we definitely need to improve and work hard to change things around.'
