first_img Lambert said: “That’s the way Fabian plays, he plays the game that way, and you can’t curtail it, that’s the way he plays the game. “So yeah, he’ll miss the game next week. “I don’t think he’s as brash as what he was, but that will come with maturity and experience, he’ll learn that side of the game. “As I said, he’s been good for me, so we’ll go again.” Villa surrendered their five-game unbeaten Barclays Premier League streak in feeble style at Craven Cottage last weekend. Manager Lambert admitted his side looked jaded, and also revealed fitness doubts remain for striker Libor Kozak and defender Ron Vlaar. Kozak limped out of Villa’s 3-2 victory at Southampton last week, and missed the trip to Fulham. The forward’s toe injury at one point left him unable to put on a boot. Press Association Fabian Delph does not need to tone down his hard-tackling style, according to Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert. Lambert said: “He got a problem with his toe, he picked it up the other night, and it was just too painful for him to go on with. “It’s giving him so much discomfort he couldn’t get his boot on the other day, so we’ll wait and see.” Unsure when Vlaar will be ready to return, Lambert said: “I don’t think it will be months, nothing like that. “It all depends on how quick the injury comes on.” Despite Sunday’s lacklustre showing at Craven Cottage, Lambert said Villa must holds their heads high, especially as they trail this weekend’s opponents United by just three points in the table. Lambert said: “Five games unbeaten has been great, we went to some tough places and got some points. “We’re still sat where we are in the table which is great, and if you put it into perspective we’re still three points behind Manchester United which is great. “So there’s no doom and gloom, we’ve lost a game of football but we’ll bounce back.” Delph picked up a yellow card in Sunday’s 2-0 defeat at Fulham that leaves him suspended for Sunday’s Manchester United clash. Lambert admitted Villa will miss the lively midfielder against David Moyes’ men, but said he will not ask the 24-year-old to cool his approach. last_img read more

first_imgManagement member of Kumasi Asante Kotoko, David Serebour Boateng has pleaded with owner of the Club; Otumfo Osei Tutu II to sack the entire board and management members  without excluding him (Serebour) for lack of commitment to their assigned jobs. The current Board and Management members of the club have come under intense pressure from their fans after their exit from the CAF Champions league and allegations of their incompetency to renew contracts of some key players including Striker Yahaya Mohammed who is said to have signed for Libyan side Ittihad Tripoli. Boateng who acts as a deputy Accra rep of Kotoko in an interview on Asempa FM’s Ultimate Sports show pleaded with the live patron of the club, Otumfo to take a drastic decision by sacking all Board and Management members. “I think it’s time Otumfo takes the club from this Board and management including myself, it is just sad since there are only two board members, Alhaji Lamin and Champion who contribute money to run Kotoko. The board is just not in charge and it’s very serious. I think it is in the interest of the club and the leaders of the club to resign honourably or Nana should sack all of us and bring different set of people to manage the club.”He added Asante Kotoko is currently in the western region ahead of their outstanding First Capital Premier League game against Medeama SC tomorrow on Thursday..last_img read more
