Villa aiming for Europe

Published Add your comment

Chief executive Paul Faulkner believes Aston Villa should be challenging for a European spot this season.

Villa are lying in eighth spot in the Barclays Premier League although seven points adrift of Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal on 22 points but Faulkner feels the quality of players at manager Alex McLeish's disposal means they should be setting their sights on Europe.

He told the Birmingham Mail: "I think Europe sits there as a goal and this year that would be our goal. That's what we want to try and achieve."
