Arsene Wenger Wary Of Aston Villa
Arsene Wenger has pointed to Villa as one of ten clubs who have the potential to be massive and who could break into the top four.
I remember Sir Alex Ferguson who manages a small club called Manchester United saying in his book that he believed Villa were going to be their biggest rivals in the 90's, so it just shows these managers know the potential at Villa Park and now we have a board and owner who also understand what Aston Villa was and can be once again.
The Arsenal manager said Villa is 'a big club with the same potential as Arsenal' and with Randy Lerner and Martin O'Neill at the helm, not to mention a professional and well qualified board, we will hopefully see massive steps forward in the next few seasons.
Wenger added: 'In England, you have the potential of 10 massive clubs and they will not always be asleep. To smash in and compete in the top four, you will now have Aston Villa, Newcastle, Tottenham. They are all big clubs with the same potential as Arsenal.'
Not sure the Gooner fans will enjoy him saying Spurs have potential as well though!?
