Well, well, Randy Lerner has been a busy man in the press recently!
The last quotes suggest he sees Martin O'Neill as our long term manager and says he can see no reason why the manager would need to move on.
The Villa owner told the News of the World:
'Can he realise his ambitions here? Yes. We must create a situation where he doesn't feel the need to look elsewhere.'
And the People are quoting him also after links to the England job and the Manchester United job when Sir Alex Chewalot moves on:
'He is in demand, but I expect Martin to be with Villa and I don't see beyond that expectation. I don't think about speculation with other clubs, I think about him with Villa. He is an ambitious man, but that's what you want.'
He also says that players like Ashley Young picking up the PFA Young Player of the Year award shows Villa are moving forward adding:
'Individual awards are stepping stones to team accolades and part of the slowly, slowly philosophy we are trying to build.'
'Next season we just want to try to come back stronger.'
