Villa boss O'Neill upset with Eriksson over Mellberg comments

Aston Villa boss Martin O'Neill admits he's angry that Manchester City rival Sven Goran Eriksson urged Juventus to move for Olof Mellberg.

The Northern Irishman told PA Sport: "I was really surprised with what Sven has said because it is out of character for Sven to be speaking like that.

"I am surprised if he has said it. I am not sure he should be saying things like that about a player unless he is aiming to take him himself!

"Recommending him to another club is surprising. Maybe I should recommend some of his Manchester City players to Manchester United.

"But am I going to phone Sven up about it, absolutely not."
