Aston Villa striker Bent disappointed Houllier leaving

Aston Villa striker Darren Bent is sorry that Gerard Houllier has stepped down as manager.

Bent was brought to Villa Park by Houllier in January.

He said: "It is sad for me to see Gerard go. He signed me, invested a lot of money in me.

"He showed a lot of faith in me.

"But your health comes first and, if he's not well enough to come back, then he needs to take a break."
