"For a start, I've never owned a Bentley (he drives a Mercedes) although I'm not sure that was ever directed at me. It was one of the other lads who actually had the Bentley (Anton Ferdinand)," said Reo-Coker.
"I realise controversy sells. It's the society we live in. There's a fascination with players who get into trouble or cheat on their wives.
"But that's not me. I'm a team player and I've always regarded myself in that way. I do my job and then go home and all I'm interested in is playing well for Aston Villa.
"I'm enjoying it here, enjoying working with Martin O'Neill. He has modified my game, made me more disciplined and more defensively minded and made me a better player as a result. All I'm thinking about right now is showing that against Arsenal this weekend."
