Paul Faulkner recently had a online webchat with fans and was asked about Paul Lambert’s contract, whether or not an extension was planed and so on. He replied that the Aston Villa board are relaxed regarding Lambert’s contract considering the fact that there are still 2 more years on it. However he is keen to see Aston Villa have a long term future and success with manager Paul Lambert, also stressed that the board have great relation with the manager and it’s staff.
“We have a fantastic relationship with Paul and his backroom team and he has been great to work with from my point of view.
“I know that he loves being at Villa and we’re looking forward to trying to really achieve something together over the coming years. – Paul Faulkner
I think if Aston Villa have a successful season, Lambert will be given a new contract. I think the fans are keen to have a bit of stability at the club and many fans enjoy and agree with Lambert’s philosophies and the direction that he wants to take the club.
