'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Mellberg Hoping To Bid Farewell In Style

Olof Mellberg is hoping to be fit to bid farewell to the loyal fans of Aston Villa before moving in the summer to Juventus. We reported yesterday that Ollie has a bug but he hopes to shake it off. The bearded one said on the official site:

'The fans in England are very different to the fans elsewhere and our fans here at Aston Villa have always been fantastic with me. I think they know I have always given 100 per cent and they have been with me ever since I joined the club. I have always said I have appreciated the fans for the way they have supported me. The whole club has treated me fantastically well - I have never had any problems with anyone really.'

'I have always wanted to thank them by showing them how much I care on the pitch. That's what I have always tried to do - even after I signed for Juventus. When I signed, I said to them I just wanted to keep playing and hopefully I have done that in my performances to the club and fans.'

Finishing: 'It would be great to finish with a home win that would move us closer to European football and to qualify for the UEFA Cup would be a great way to end my time at Aston Villa.'

Come on Ollie, take your lemsip and get out on the pitch!
