O'Neill: Villa will be stronger for this UEFA Cup run

Aston Villa will be a stronger club for their UEFA Cup run, insists Martin O'Neill.

Aston Villa will be a stronger club for their UEFA Cup run, insists Martin O'Neill.

Villa were dumped out of Europe at CSKA Moscow last night fielding a reserve team, but O'Neill argued: "We have played very strongly this year and that's why we are in the position we're in, and we don't want to give it up lightly.

"Given another opportunity, something this football club should be able to obtain, I think the experiences we've had, from July (the Intertoto Cup) through to now, will stand this team in good stead."
