Carew Up For The Challenge
John Carew has spoken of his move to the Premiership.
On the official site he said:
'I've played in many places in Europe, but not in the Premiership, so I'm looking forward to the challenge here. Martin O'Neill is a great manager, very well respected, and I'm really looking forward to working with him. I don't know too much about the squad here, but I do know some of the players I have played against - especially the defenders.'
Adding: 'Aston Villa is a big English club and I've always known about the team. There is a big interest in the team in my country Norway, so I'm really happy to be here. I've been lucky to play for big teams, in Spain and Italy especially. I've just been playing in France - with the French champions. So I've played for some good teams and with some of the best players in the world. Now I have a big challenge and I'm really looking forward to it.'
'It is always a challenge when you come to a new environment and up until now it's always gone very well for me. I've enjoyed myself wherever I've been and I've played with some big players.'
Well, Villa have a proud tradition of fine strikers, lets hope Carew is the next in that line, because of late we've had some right lame ducks!!!!!
