Carew pleads with new Villa boss Houllier for clean slate

John Carew has pleaded with new Aston Villa boss Gerard Houllier to give him a chance.

The Frenchman axed Carew after a fall out when they were at Lyon. The pair will speak this week to make amends.

The striker said: "My mission is to work hard day to day to make the starting eleven at Aston Villa.

"I do not have problems with the coach. What is done is done and I accept it. My exit from Lyon is in the past.

"Now I am only interested in the present - and I think I will have a chance to play.''
