McLeish determined to win over new Aston Villa fans

Aston Villa boss Alex McLeish is determined to win over his new fans.

Many Villans are upset with the appointment.

McLeish is determined to win them over, but knows there will be more pressure on him to achieve positive results because of the nature of his move.

He said: "Maybe there is a bit more pressure on me from that point of view to get results.

"But, at the same time, it is the remit of every manager, in any job, about getting a good start, a fast start, and Martin Jol will be saying the same thing at Fulham.

"The message to the fans is let me prove myself and I'll win you over.

"It's not a case of proving them wrong because I want to go forward with the Villa fans.

"I want to prove to them that I am the man for this job."
