The manager of Aston Villa, Paul Lambert, has said that he is quite impressed with Ron Vlaar’s performance in the match against Nottingham Forest. That was the first match of Vlaar for Aston Villa. Nottingham defeated Aston Villa by 3-1 in the match. As per Lambert, though the team was not able to win the match, but, Vlaar’s performance in the match was a big positive for Aston Villa. Vlaar has signed for Aston Villa this summer. He has joined the club on a contract of 3 years.
Before joining Aston Villa, Vlaar used to play for Feyenoord. He had been playing for Feyenoord since the last 6 years. He joined Feyenoord in 2006 and in his very first season for the club, he started getting chances to feature in the first team. But, during his tenure with Feyenoord, Vlaar struggled with injuries a lot. In the 2006-07 season, he had to miss a large number of matches due to foot injury. In the next season, he injured himself again and he had to go through a surgery. Due to that, he wasn’t able to play in the later part of 2007-08 season. In the last two seasons, he played without having an injury and his performance was quite good in the last season. He decided to move to Aston Villa this summer.
Lambert said that Vlaar would become very popular among the crowd in the upcoming season. He is technically very good and he has got a fantastic temperament as well. On being asked about the defeat of Aston Villa against Nottingham, Lambert said that he doesn’t give too much importance to these pre season games. Winning the league matches is more important for the team. As per Lambert, he doesn’t want to think too much about this defeat. He has full confidence in his players and hopefully, they would do well in the upcoming season.
