Gerard Houllier admits he's yet to sign his Aston Villa contract.
Houllier finally takes charge of Villa for the first time in Wednesday night's Carling Cup clash with Blackburn after agreeing to become Martin O'Neill's successor nearly two weeks ago.
When asked if he had signed the contract, Houllier said: "No, not yet but it is okay.
"The word is more important than the rest. You mean physically? No, but don't be worried.
"This is not important - I think at Liverpool, I didn't sign until November or December."
