Striker John Carew believes it is vital for Aston Villa to secure European football to help the wealth of young talent at the club to move on to the next level.

Carew has played in Europe consistently throughout his career and feels it is crucial for the likes of Ashley Young, relishing being given a free role by Martin O´Neill, and Gabriel Agbonlahor to show their skills on the continental stage for the first time.

He said: "It is important for development of young players to play in Europe, absolutely right, in terms of the experience and everything which can be gained from playing against top players from other countries."
