Villa striker Luke Moore has told of his admiration for new owner Randy Lerner, and of his holiday (oops, surgery) in the USA.
The striker was able to take advantage of Lerner's other sports club, the NFL team Cleveland Browns with Browns surgeon Tony Miniaci operating on his dodgy shoulder.
'I've been over to Cleveland quite a lot and I'm familiar with their set-up. I've met Mr Lerner on a few occasions and what he told me makes me really excited for the future.
'I can tell, just by looking at the Browns, what he wants to incorporate over here. You just know he's going to be successful.' Moore said.
He went on to say that so far he hasn't had any problems with the shoulder since the surgery, despite the rough and tumble nature of reserve team football. Luke did also mention that he enjoyed his weeks rehab in Cleveland, good for him!
