Garde calls for unity


Aston Villa manager Remi Garde has called for unity as the threat of relegation looms large.

Villa suffered their 18th defeat of the season to leave them rooted to the bottom of the Premier League table, eight points from safety with just ten games remaining.

Less than 30,000 attended Tuesday's 3-1 defeat to Everton but large numbers of supporters staged a walkout in the 74th minute in protest at the club's decline under owner Randy Lerner.

Garde was reluctant to discuss the walkout, preferring to focus his energies on Villa's relegation battle.

"I'm not too comfortable with this. I'm not in a position here long enough to assess the behaviour of everyone," Garde said when asked about the protest.

"I respect totally the fans as part of this football club but I have to respect as well my position and the people who put me in this position.

"I will focus my energy on trying to get the points we need. This is my job, to try to keep the players with as much confidence as I can and we need to stay together in this difficult situation.

"It's difficult to find the right words but then we always have to find the resources deep inside, everybody has to do that."
