​No French favouritism from Villa boss Garde

Aston Villa manager Remi Garde has assured his players he won't show any favouritism to the Frenchmen in his squad.

Villa currently have three French players, Jordan Veretout, Jordan Amavi and Charles N'Zogbia, in their squad and they all featured in the goalless draw against Manchester City on Sunday.

"They are not back because they are French or I knew them," Garde said.

"In a fortnight it can be a different team. They did well but the team did well. I think the spirit they are starting to show all together is better than I saw previously.

"I think Charles is an interesting player. He was quite okay in the training sessions and I thought he could be useful for the team. That's it."
