Agbonlahor calls on Aston Villa fans to get behind Big Eck

Aston Villa striker Gabby Agbonlahor has called on fans to get behind new manager Alex McLeish.

Agbonlahor called on the fans to get behind McLeish.

He said: "This is a new start. Alex McLeish coming here is a good thing because he is a good manager. Look at his record with Rangers and Scotland, he's always done well.

"At Birmingham his team had to play a certain way and some Villa supporters seem to be worried about that kind of style because it's not Villa's way.

"But with the talented group of attacking players here, it will be a lot different and I'm sure that's another reason why he's taking this challenge.

"To those Villa fans who don't seem to be happy with his appointment, my message is simply to give him a chance and see what he can do.

"For him to take on this challenge shows he has the belief that he can do a job here at Villa.

It's a move that only a man with a lot of courage and self-belief would make and people have to respect that."
