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."
