Villa boss Lambert enthuses: Weimann will have one big career for sure

Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert feels they have something special on their hands in Andi Weimann.

The Austrian was outstanding for victory over QPR.

Lambert told Villa's website: "Andi must have another lung somewhere because he has a phenomenal work-rate.

"That will serve him well for his whole career from now until the day he stops. If he keeps that enthusiasm and that hunger and desire to play a game of football he will have a big, big career.

"He is a phenomenal player to work with. He is a great lad. His enthusiasm for the game? If he can keep that throughout his career, he will have one big career for sure.

"I don't think he was a regular in the side when I came in. He was in and out. You give him a chance. He's playing exceptionally well. I know his natural position is through the middle. But whether he plays off the line or through the middle he seems to score.

"The biggest compliment I can give him if that he's a brilliant guy and gives you everything he's got. If he keeps that he will go a long way.

"The team's overall enthusiasm is exceptional. Andi showed that with his work for the third goal - he never gave it up. That's Andi all over. That's his character."
