Martin O'Neill has spoken about the £13million redevelopment of Bodymoor Heath training complex and said: 'These facilities are second to none.'
The Villa manager cut the ribbon this morning of the all new and majorly improved training ground facilities with Sir Dennis of Mortimer and current club captain Gareth Barry.
He said 'This place is absolutely terrific, it really is. We couldn't ask for a better facility. I thought the current training ground was OK as it was, but this is another thing entirely. Now having such a state-of-the-art facility guarantees nothing on the field of play, but we will lack nothing in our preparations next season.'
'There's no doubt in the modern game that looking after players in the best possible way is becoming the norm. I hope the players are deserving of it. It will be great to train in a decent environment with great facilities. These are the last word. The facilities are totally different to what it was like in my day.'
If you went to the open day today, let us know how it went in the article comments below!
Certainly looks a bit different to what we had before with portacabins for some of the changing rooms!
