Villa boss Lambert insists no Lerner pressure to sell

Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert says he's under no pressure from chairman Randy Lerner to sell.

After spending more than £200m chasing Champions League qualification, Lerner wants Villa to be self-sustaining. But Lambert said he had been under no pressure to sell high earners.

"Not once has either Paul Faulkner (chief executive) or the chairman said: 'I need you to do x, y or z'. It's up to me to make the decisions."
