Villa captain Vlaar: I'm no natural talent

Aston Villa captain Ron Vlaar admits he's "no natural talent".

Vlaar is determined to keep his place in Holland's squad for next year's World Cup.

"I am not a natural talent, so you should continue to invest in yourself," he declared. "Nothing comes naturally.

"Also I stayed behind as a youth after training to work. A football career lasts ten to fifteen years. So you must depend on yourself to get the most from it."
