Ashley Young: Gerard Houllier will win things at Aston Villa


Aston Villa forward Ashley Young believes Gerard Houllier is the right man to bring success back to the Midlands club.

Houllier has agreed to become Villa's new manager and will officially take the reins when he has worked a period of notice with his current employers, the French Football Association.

The 63-year-old won four major trophies during six years as Liverpool manager and Young believes the French coach will bring similar success to Villa Park.

Under former boss Martin O'Neill, they lost last season's Carling Cup Final to Manchester United but Young said:"You look at his history and how well he has done as a manager and he can only bring success here.

"Moving the club forward is what we want and we can't wait to work with the boss.

"Last year we suffered disappointment in both cups, but fingers crossed it will be different this time. We want to win trophies at Villa."
