Tim Sherwood's message for anyone looking to buy Aston Villa

Aston Villa manager Tim Sherwood has spoken about the way he's currently going about his business at the club.

Aston Villa manager Tim Sherwood told talkSPORT that he doesn’t see any reason why the club can’t attract a big investor.

Sherwood suggested that the club’s size and support base made Villa an exciting proposition for anyone looking to invest in a club from the outside, but stressed he doesn’t have any issues with the job he’s currently doing and the nature of it.

“Why not? They’re one of the biggest clubs in English football – You know what? I’m quite happy doing the job the way I’m doing it,” he said.

“I’m happy with the development of younger players, I like working and making people better, it’s not all about just going into the transfer market and buying it.”

The Daily Mail reported last March that current Villa owner Randy Lerner was looking to sell the club and pass the business on to a new backer, who may be able to get more out of the club than the American has managed.

One of the best qualities about Sherwood is that he won’t let himself or his players be affected by any outside speculation over who controls the future of the football club.

He’ll keep things simple with his approach to the end of the season and will make sure that his players are focused on winning the FA Cup final against Arsenal.

That’s not going to be an easy task because confidence is going to be low around the club at the moment following the thrashing handed out by Southampton last weekend.
