Carew shrugs off Lyon slurs

Aston Villa striker John Carew has hit back at jibes from his former club Lyon about his level of performance at the French club.

Lyon official Bernard Lacombe claimed Carew was "a bit too static" and "was not always the best when it came to reading the game". But Carew believes the attack by Lacombe is designed to act as a smokescreen for a poor run of results by Lyon since his departure during the January transfer window in a swap deal with Milan Baros.

Carew told PA Sport: "I left Lyon, they lost five matches - and then the questions start to be asked so I think it is just to justify what they did. I think that is a desperate comment (by Lacombe) aimed to protect themselves. To be honest, it doesn´t bother me that much. I turn it into a compliment."
