Paul Lambert says he will remain Aston Villa manager next year

Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert insists he is still "intent" on remaining manager of the club, despite the suspension of two first-team coaches this week.

The Villa boss also maintains that he still has a "good relationship" with club owner Randy Lerner.

Lambert did however refuse to comment on the reasons why Ian Culverhouse and Gary Karsa have been suspended by the club. The coaching duo are now facing an internal investigation, and have been replaced by Gordon Cowans and Shay Given.
