With the excellent news that star striker Christian Benteke and another 6 players (Weimann, Lowton, Guzan, Westwood, Baker and Clarke) have all committed there immediate future to us for the next 3-4 years, the question on a lot of supporters lips must be, when will Paul Lambert sign an extension?
What Paul Lambert has done at Villa, in my opinion, is phenomenal. He’s completely reshaped the club, brought young, unknown players and worked with them to improve them, frozen out the players with big egos and who aren’t interested in giving there all for Aston Villa, improved the scouting network tenfold and he’s also as given us fans our club back, as well as a great sense of optimism for the future.
Lambert has 2 years left on his contract but surely Lerner and Faulkener need to start negotiations in the near future. I think Lambert has the potential and knowledge to go right to the very top, hopefully that’ll be with Villa and it’s now down to our owner and CEO to make sure they open talks sooner rather than later.
I have no doubt that Lambert will be with us for the next 5 years, providing he continues to be allowed to manage the club the way he is at the moment.
I can’t wait for the new season to begin. It’s been a fantastic summer so far. The icing on the cake would surely be reading that Paul Lambert has signed an extension.
