Juan Pablo Angel has told the official site he is looking forward to next season and mystifyingly adds that 'this is our strongest squad for ages.'
It is the same squad as last season, with the exception of James Milner who, unless we finally bid and bring him to Villa Park, has ended his spell with us and Ulises de la Cruz who will see his contract run out in a few weeks time.
Still, it is nice to see positive talk from Angel who welcomed O'Leary in his first season as manager with 23 goals but produced only 3 last term in what proved to be a very stop-start season for the Columbian international.
He said that he usually doesn't say anything in the summer, just looks after keeping himself fit but that he is already looking forward to starting again in August adding 'I love what I am doing and hopefully I can come back and start afresh, but I am looking forward to the rest of my break. It is important that as players we forget about last season and pick things up next year.'
He told the official site: 'last season was not good for me and it was not good for the club. Hopefully next season we can change things around and have a wonderful season because I believe this is a really strong squad- the strongest we have had for the last three or four years.'
Finishing: 'We have quality here. We can produce great performances, but we need to start getting results. In football that is all that matters.'
Strongest squad for 3-4 years? So no money needed from Doug then, he'll be pleased and no ready made excuses for the manager, he'll be gutted. Maybe being gutted will be a plausible excuse?!
