Houllier urges Villa fans to get behind McLeish

Former Aston Villa boss Gerard Houllier has urged fans to give new manager Alex McLeish a chance.

He agrees with striker Gabby Agbonlahor that the new manager should be given time to make his mark on the club despite his St Andrew's connections.

"I think Gabby said some comments saying you need to give him a chance and I agree," Houllier told the Birmingham Mail.

"He's just arrived. I think he's strong enough. He's got the personnel to win football matches."
