Agbonlahor reluctant to endorse new Villa gaffer Houllier

Gabby Agbonlahor may need to be won over by new Aston Villa boss Gerard Houllier.

The striker appeared reluctant to offer any kind of endorsement of Houllier, who watched Villa's 1-1 draw with Bolton from the directors' box alongside new assistant Gary McAllister.

When asked whether Agbonlahor was impressed by Houllier's curriculum vitae and if he was looking forward to working with him, he said: "Next question."

Agbonlahor was pressed for an answer, to which he replied: "If you look at his record at Liverpool, what he has done, what he has won, obviously we're looking forward.

"It's hard to say anything because Kev (MacDonald) has done so well, but times change and we'll be looking forward to training with the new manager."
