Aston Villa's Lerner Says He Will Not Address Sale Rumors Until End Of EPL Season
Published April 21, 2014
WHY WAIT? In London, Dan Lucas writes Villa fans "must be wondering" why Lerner "would bother to wait" to address the sale rumors. Lerner presumably "does not wish to distract the team from... what, exactly?" The club has "only won twice since the end of January." A "quick glance at recent historical Premier League tables show that Villa have declined in stature quite miserably over the past decade, much of which was under Lerner's tenure." With four games left in the EPL season, "perhaps this time the chairman could give his fans something -- anything -- to care about at the close of the season" (London TELEGRAPH, 4/21).
