Mellberg urges Villa on to Europe

Published Add your comment

Olof Mellberg has set his sights on helping Aston Villa qualify for Europe before he completes his summer move to Juventus.

The Sweden international will end a seven-season spell at Villa when his current contract expires in June and he makes the switch to the Italian giants on a three-year contract.

But that will not stop the 30-year-old from wanting to end on a high note with the midlands club, he said: "I have 14 cup finals to play - and I´m looking forward to them. I felt it was time for a new challenge but my total focus now is my performances for Villa."
