Martin O'Neill has spoken about Villa owner and chairman Randy Lerner saying the American knows success at Villa won't come at the drop of a hat and that patience will be needed.
'Has this been a reality check for Randy Lerner? Absolutely not. For somebody who was not involved in the game directly up until August, it's amazing how greatly he's realised the situation. He's been involved in sport with the Cleveland Browns and he is well aware of the facet of winning and losing and how difficult it is. It's not as if he was coming in here thinking he just had to get a club, add two players to it and suddenly take off from being not so clever to being absolutely brilliant overnight.'
'In fact it's quite the opposite. He is very, very aware of how difficult it is and I think that's half the excitement about it. Randy Lerner has been true to his word. He said he would be supportive and that he would prefer to stay in the background. He said help would be forthcoming if it was needed and I think he realises all those things. So everything that he's said all along, from our first meeting, he's supported it.'
O'Neill continued on the official site about the holy grail of the Champions League: ''Getting there takes an awful lot of hard work, takes an awful lot of good play and takes something better than we're capable of at this moment. But that doesn't stop me from thinking that's where we'd like to go at some stage.'
