Villa boss Houllier confirms Duverne talks

Aston Villa boss Gerard Houllier has revealed talks with Robert Duverne about joining as new fitness coach.

Duverne hit the news over the summer after clashing with Patrice Evra during France's shambolic World Cup campaign.

Earlier this week he quit his role with newly-promoted Ligue 1 side Arles-Avignon so would be available to work with Houllier.

"He is competent, and we are in contact," the new Villa boss confirmed on Canal+.
