Aston Villa are flying high in the English Premier League at the moment. The Villans are at a heroic 6th in the league and can even qualify for the UEFA Champions League next season and their star midfielder and England international Gareth Barry is obviously looking to a glorious future with the club.
The club is buoyant at the moment. I have experienced quite a few low points at this club but it makes times like this, when things are going so well, even better.
If I were to captain the club into Europe, that would be the best achievement of my career.
I am looking forward to that happening but there is still a lot of hard work ahead.
We have not achieved anything yet and this is now the most important part of the season. We have to keep our eye on the ball. There is still a lot of hard work ahead.
Martin O’Neill’s side indeed deserve praise but the players need to maintain their focus in the final third of the season when a whole cluster of teams are vying to qualify for Europe. A Champions League spot is a heavy task but a UEFA Cup berth is certainly within their reach.
