Lambert staying calm in middle of chaos

PAUL LAMBERT insists he is relaxed about the club's current situation and has stressed he "fully intends" to remain as manager, regardless of who ends up owning the club after the summer.

Villa have had a turbulent time of late, with a run of five games without a win - four of them defeats - seeing them tumble into the Barclays Premier League relegation battle, two of the coaching staff being suspended and speculation growing that chairman Randy Lerner is ready to sell the club.

"He [Lerner] was over here on Tuesday," said Lambert. "I had a chat with him. Not a long chat. I am the manager of the football club but I am not privy to everything that goes on. I am not uptight about anything. I am here to win football matches. That's always the case."
