Martin Laursen has spoken of his admiration for Ciaran Clark and he believes that Clarkie will have a vital role to play for Villa next season.
Speaking to the Official Site Laursen said he was impressed with Clark's versatility, as he was often used in midfield as opposed to his natural and best position of centre half, and our former Man Mountain believes that Ciaran has all it takes to cement a regular place in the first team:
'I think next season is very important for Ciaran. Now he has some experience and has shown everyone he has the potential to be a really good player.'
Laursen adds that in his time he didn't train with Clark very often, but he knew how highly rated he was by the youth and reserve coaches.
'He had been captain of the youth team and then the reserves so that shows the high esteem in which he was held. I always heard people around the club talking very highly of him.'
