General Krulak says Villa will not raid rival for manager

Aston Villa insist they're not about to raid another club for a new manager.

Villa director General Charles Krulak insists the next boss will not be someone from another club who jumps ship for the lure of more cash.

He said: "There are those who seem to think we can waltz into any club and get a manager to leave their club and come to ours.

"Did it ever occur to you that I - speaking as a fan and former Marine, who values loyalty - may not want a manager who would up and desert his club for additional money? I may well think such a manager might not be right for our club. I am not sure getting someone who has baled out from their club is something I'd be comfortable about."
