Olof Mellberg - Villa Legend
Olof Mellberg thanked the fans for their support on his last home game and apologised about the result!
Many fans turned up in Viking hats and beards and plenty had Sweden tops on.
The Villa legend, off to Juventus in the summer, said:
'The fans were fantastic before, during and after the game. It was very special and not many players get to experience that. Everyone knows I'm not going to be playing here next season so we had the chance to thank each other.'
'I had the chance to look around and see all the yellow shirts, the flags and everything. It was fantastic. I'm disappointed about the result but in a few days time I will be able to look back at everything else. I've taken a few pictures and filmed everything that happened after the game. I'll look back at this with a lot of emotion. To hear all the fans was very special and it was important for me to be able to thank them as well. They have supported me through all my time at Aston Villa and I will miss them.'
Olof also paraded around after with his kids, which is a nice touch I think.
Thanks Mellberg, 'it's been emotional!' Good luck at Juventus and don't forget to visit!
