Aston Villa's season verged on the disastrous, according to chief executive Paul Faulkner.

Manager Alex McLeish was sacked on Monday after Villa finished 16th, just two points above the Barclays Premier League relegation zone. It was the club's worst league finish in six years and their lowest points total in 42 years.

"I suppose a disaster would have been getting relegated but this was too close for comfort," Faulkner told BBC Radio Five Live.
