Steven Gerrard has high hopes for the coming season. Aston Villa finished their season at 14th place with 45 points. Gerrard expects the team to finish in the top half of the table in the upcoming season.
“Higher up the table, I think realistically we should be at minimum in the top half. Minimum. We want to go and push up towards the top six and we want better runs in the cup competitions. That is where I want to be. I want to be in both cups and I want to be in a higher place up the table.”
Gerrard had also spoken about how he wanted to upgrade the eleven while working with the team.
“There are areas of the team where we are blessed and lucky to have some top talent but there are also areas where we believe we can get stronger and better. Let’s just leave it pretty vague and say we are looking to upgrade the eleven. I think the spine of the team needs some support. You can never stop working with your players, trying to improve them. But sometimes individual errors are on the individuals. If things don’t change you are left with no choice. You either change them with someone else in the building or you upgrade them,”
Villa in the Transfer Market
Gerrard and Villa supporters alike would be hopeful come the new season. Moreover, they will be expecting a new signing in the coming days. Aston Villa have shown interest in Luis Suarez who played alongside Gerrard at Liverpool. Villa are also keeping tabs on Alexis Sanchez who has a year left in his contract at Inter Milan. Moreover, Villa will be mindful of the excessive number of players in the squad. They would be hoping to find a permanent solution for Lovre Kalinic’s problem as he has been another player in the wage bill.
