Laursen - Villa job 'too soon'

Former Aston Villa skipper Martin Laursen has ruled out a return to the club as manager this summer, after speculation linking him to the vacant position.

Laursen did, though, admit that it would be "a dream" for him to take charge of the club sometime in future. The Danish international was forced to retire three years ago due to the serious knee injuries that had hampered his Villa career.

There had been some speculation linking Laursen with a Villa Park return, but he is staying in Denmark to complete his coaching badges at Sollerod-Vedbaek.

Laursen said: "That (the speculation) is flattering but it (Villa) is too soon for me, I'm afraid. I'm taking my coaching badges in Denmark and coaching at Sollerod to get some experience. It is going well but to manage Villa is too early. In the future, that would be a dream for me. Fans know how much I love Villa, a great club."

The favourite for the Villa Park position remains former-Manchester United favourite Ole Gunnar Soskjaer, whilst Brendan Rodgers and Paul Lambert remain contenders.
