Darren Bent has said he wants to keep the captain’s armband in the absence of Stiliyan Petrov, and he hopes leading the side will prove he is committed to the club.
Speaking to the Birmingham Mail Benty said:
‘I spoke to a couple of people pre season about being the captain and it does show I’m committed to Aston Villa. I’ve always said to people that I’m committed to Aston Villa, that I want to stay here and I’ve got no intention of leaving, and hopefully me getting the armband shows people that. If I can hang onto it, I’ll be delighted, and that’s a big goal of mine.’
On Paul Lambert, Bent added that the boss had been clear with each player what he wants and expects from them and the players are responding:
‘I know straight away all the boys in the dressing room and buying into his ideas and his tactics and we’re all pulling in the same direction.’
