The Mirror quotes the Aston Villa striker Marlon Harewood as saying that he is looking forward to playing in the UEFA Cup with his club next season. Villa are currently in a great position to qualify for the top six in the English Premier League and the former West Ham United striker says that he is eager to feature in Europe again next season.
My one experience of Europe ended very quickly so I’d like to put that right.
Premier League clubs are doing well in Europe this season and we want some of that. We’ve got the quality here to do that.
That’s what the gaffer wants too. Martin O’Neill is used to Europe from his time at Celtic and he wants this club in that bracket.
Yet doubt remains, not on whether the Midlands club can qualify for the UEFA Cup or not but on whether Harewood would be featuring for the team. Villa manager Martin O’Neill has already spoken of his desire to revamp the team in the summer to bolster his team for Europe next season and Harewood would remain at Villa Park next season, it is not guaranteed that he will feature heavily for the Villains.
