Players back Lambert - Vlaar

Published Add your comment

Skipper Ron Vlaar insists Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert retains the full support of the players as they look to recover from Capital Cup One heartbreak.

Villa suffered a shock 4-3 aggregate semi-final setback against npower League Two side Bradford despite winning the second leg 2-1 at Villa Park on Tuesday night. It was the latest blow in a season where the club have become embroiled in a Barclays Premier League relegation battle.

Bradford fans chanted 'you're getting sacked in the morning' to Lambert during the second half. But Vlaar and his team-mates retain total faith in Lambert whose position is not under threat. The Dutch international said: "The players are still all behind the manager. That is not an issue. Why should it be?"
