Mark Delaney Says Villa ARE On The Up

Mark Delaney Says Villa ARE On The Up

Former Villa right-back, now youth team coach, Mark Delaney has told the Birmingham Post he is sure Villa are building and can challenge the top four.

The 32-year-old, who sadly had to retire early due to a long line of injuries, says Villa have taken 'another step forward this season' saying it has been 'brilliant'.

'They may not finish in fourth – it’s going to be difficult now – but if they finish in fifth or sixth it will still have been a great season and will also guarantee a spot in Europe again.'

He reminds fans that John Gregory also used to have Villa in the top part of the table and says after he 'left' things went a little bit south!

'The fans should recognise a progression and they should see that the club is moving in the right direction on the pitch with Martin in charge. I was here for eight years and I feel we are genuinely a real top club, on and off the field. Outside the elite, I think we are as good as anyone and hopefully Martin can take us into that top four soon.'
