Former Aston Villa striker Juan Pablo Angel has hailed the work being done on and off the pitch at Villa Park.
The MLS star said: "It's incredible to see what is happening to Villa right now. I knew it was likely because the manager is phenomenal and the chairman has done a tremendous job behind the scenes too.
"Martin O'Neill and Randy Lerner seem to communicate very well with each other and have done some great business in the transfer market too by bringing in the right players.
"I think the future looks very bright for the club with those two men in charge."
