thumbnail Hello,

The Austrian international has spoken of his trust in manager Paul Lambert and believes that with the youth that they possess, there can be a big future for the team

Aston Villa attacker Andreas Weimann insists that is a great time to be associated with the club and believes they have a lot of potential.

Weimann has scored seven goals in the Premier League this term, mostly from an unaccustomed right-wing position due to the form of Christian Benteke.

But after a poor league campaign in which the Villans sit 16th, the 21-year-old still believes that there are exciting times ahead for Paul Lambert's side.

"What the gaffer is building here we all believe in and we just have to continue working hard for him and each other," Weimann told the Daily Mirror.

"I think that's what Aston Villa is about. It's a family club. We're growing and getting better all the time, and I think there's a lot of potential in the team right now because as players we're only going to get better."

Weimann signed for Villa from Rapid Vienna in 2007 at the age of just 15, and he spoke about the great enjoyment of his time at Villa Park.

"Like I said, the spirit and belief within the squad and within the club is really good," the striker continued.

"It's really exciting for everyone, it's exciting for the players, it's exciting for the fans and it's exciting for the club.

"The club is very tight-knit. A couple of weeks ago the chairman was here watching training, chatting to the manager and the lads and that's the way we are, everybody very close.

"I've been here for six years now and I've loved every minute of it."
