Petrov tells Houllier no need for Villa rebuild

Aston Villa captain Stiliyan Petrov has told Gerard Houllier there is no need for a rebuilding job at Villa Park.

Former Liverpool and Lyon boss Houllier is expected to take charge of Villa on Thursday.

Petrov told givemefootball.com: "I'm fan of (caretaker boss) Kevin McDonald and he has been at the club for a long time, but we have a chairman and he will make the decision.

"We got to a cup final and a semi-final last season, and have finished sixth for the last two years, so anyone who gets the job will know they are taking over a good team."
