Robbie Keane has insisted that the players at Villa are 100% behind the manager.
Speaking to Talksport our former loanee said that fan unrest wasn’t helpful to the team and that contrary to opinion, the players are completely behind the gaffer.
‘I heard someone saying about the manager that the players are not behind him but that is totally wrong. I have only been here a short space of time but I can see the players are 100% behind Alex McLeish.’
Keane goes onto add that McLeish needs time to build his own team and when he does, we’ll see a different Villa.
‘It’s always going to be tough when you have come from your rivals but he is a great manager and when het gets his own kind of players you will see a different team.’
Keane also references Steve Kean at Blackburn.
‘Everyone is entitled to their opinion, they pay good money but you have seen the situation at Blackburn a few months ago. Every week Kean was getting stick and all of a sudden now you don’t hear too much about it. Players do speak about what happens with the fans and singing McLeish’s name, it certainly doesn’t help anybody.’
Taken me all day to get to this one and really wasn’t worth it was it. Shock horror, player backs manager – again references former club which is irrelevant, but fails to actually comment on our style of play, our results, the way we are set up and everything else that is actually sending the faithful insane.
