Gerard Houllier boss denies Aston Villa dressing room split

Gerard Houllier insists there is no major rebellion at Aston Villa, but stressed players must “adapt or die”.

He said: “I've read about dissent in the squad over training methods but it is not true. I know it is different to what it was before but it is not true and the players will adapt gradually.

“We do a lot of work with the ball, we play a lot of games, we do some tactics as well.

“Do people have to adapt to a new manager and methods? In a way, yes. You adapt or you die.

“We are changing a lot of things and that upsets the comfort of some players.

“They are paid high wages to play and enjoy football. This is a fantastic job and sometimes you forget that.”
