Holman holds no Villa grudge: Just wasn't to be

Al Nasr signing Brett Holman holds no grudge against former club Aston Villa.

Al Nasr signing Brett Holman holds no grudge against former club Aston Villa.

Holman, who was signed by – but never played for – Alex McLeish, fell out of favour with Lambert in the second half of last season and has committed himself to the UAE Pro-League club until the summer of 2015.

“It is a move you have to put a lot of thought into,” said Holman.

“It’s a big step.

“The Premier League is a fantastic competition and I was at a great club, Aston Villa.

“They treated me really well, but it wasn’t meant to be there.

“I have a lot of ambition and so does this club, Al-Nasr.”
