Westwood: I can´t thank Lambert enough

25 June 2013 14:49

Aston Villa midfielder Ashley Westwood says he has manager Paul Lambert to thank for his impressive debut season at the club.

The 23-year-old joined the club on the final day of the August 2012 transfer window, jumping the divisions as he departed League One side Crewe.

Despite Villa avoiding relegation by just five points in 2012-13, Westwood had a strong first season in the Premier League as he started 28 games.

He believes that his progress is a result of his growing confidence, which has come from working under Lambert.

"From day one, the gaffer has just been unbelievable with me. I really can't think him enough," he told the club's official website.

"He's made me feel totally at home and he's given me a chance in the Barclays Premier League.

"He has shown real faith in me and I will never forget that. That will stay with me for the rest of my career, having someone who believes in you that much."
