Cuellar amazed by team spirit at Villa Park

Aston Villa defender Carlos Cuellar has hailed the team spirit at Villa Park.

The Spanish defender believes the spirit among Martin O'Neill's playing staff surpasses anything he ever experienced back home.

"The biggest difference is that we spend more time at the training complex together in England - breakfast, training, gym work and lunch," Cuellar told the Birmingham Mail.

"In Spain we spend more time away from each other once training is over. It's a different mentality.

"We've got a fantastic atmosphere and some great players and even though we don't have so many household names in the squad, we play at a very high level.

"Every year things keep getting better and the best is yet to come."
