Fox: Better times for Villa in next 3-5 years

Aston Villa chief Tom Fox has assured fans the sacrifices made over the past three years will pay off.

Fox is convinced Villa are on the brink of better times.

He told the Birmingham Mail: "We will be in a better place three-to-five years from where we are today.

"I think the fans have every right, for a club of this size, to expect to be competing at a level in the table that is higher than where we have been over the last three or four years.

"I think if people expect us to win the Premier League title in the next three-to-five years then that is unrealistic. But I like the fact that fans have expectations.

"That drives you higher and harder.

"We are going to try very hard to live up to those expectations and I certainly don't want the fans resigning themselves to where we have been in the last three or four years."
