O’Neill full of praise for John Carew

At the heart of Aston Villa’s 4-1 comeback demolition of poor old Newcastle United was a certain hat-trick by a certain John Carew who was nothing less than sensational in the match. Everyone at the Villa Park on Saturday felt so and Villa manager Martin O’Neill is no exception.

The Ulsterman says:

He is fantastic. But we want to put the averages up. There is a consistency that, no doubt, he can achieve. We are delighted to have won the game and it keeps us going.

Carew was signed by Aston Villa in January 2007 from French giant Lyon. The Norwegian international has settled well in the Premiership and maybe next season he would play again in Europe with Villa.
