Remi Garde says he will continue to fight to keep Aston Villa in the Premier League and refused to accept Doug Ellis claim that relegation is a certainty for the club this season. On Wednesday, the former Villa owner told Sky Sports News HQ that the club would be playing in the Sky Bet Championship next season and the majority of the blame should be taken by the current playing squad. Villa have won just three times in the league this season and currently sit bottom of the table, eight points from safety with 12 matches of the season remaining. Although Garde accepted some of Ellis comments - without specifying which remarks he agreed with - the Villa manager insisted he would not give up in his attempts to keep the club in the top-flight. First of all, I must respect the words of Doug Ellis because I know a little bit about what he has done for the football club, it is huge, Garde said. I have only been here for four months and it would not be right for me to make bad comments on that. Doug Ellis gave a frank assessment of Villas current situation He probably is right about his comments, the only thing is that until the last day that we have the possibility of being safe in this Premier League, I wont give up. My job is to still believe and make the players believe that if we have a good spell of games, like we had previously, maybe we can still be in the Premier League next season. I am still fighting and I have to accept the comment coming from this kind of person.Garde has won only two matches since replacing Tim Sherwood as Villa manager in November, failing to inspire a turnaround in the clubs fortunes. Villa are currently eight points from safety, with 12 matches remaining of the season Of course it is difficult, I have not come here to hear criticism and lose games. But it would be very weak in my position to say I am not responsible or I want to run away, I am not this kind of person, he added. It was a very difficult situation, I knew that before I came, but maybe not as much as I find. This is the situation and I will fight until the end.There are 90 minute games, if you stop playing 15 minutes before the end of the game, you are crazy. I try to be as tough as I can. I try to be as positive as I can, I try to do my best as a manager and then we will see at the end of the season.My situation is not the most important thing - like the individual situation of every player or every person at this club is not important at this minute. What is important is the collective strength that everybody can put into Villas situation to win games. I am fully focused on that.

Maybe within a couple days.The Pelicans are 2-9 this season, worst in the Western Conference, but the team has said throughout Holidays absence that there has been no pressure on him to rush back.All of the guys realize what hes been through and how tough its been for him, Gentry said ahead of Mondays matchup with the Boston Celtics. Not just the fact that hes going through the thing with his wife, but to have a newborn kid also is extremely tough. Thats why we wanted him to do it on his terms, when he felt comfortable enough to come back, so he could just play basketball and kind of not worry so much about everything else thats going on. He wasnt going to be able to do that until he was comfortable with his wife and comfortable with his kid.The Holidays have spent the opening of the season in Raleigh, North Carolina, area near the Duke Universsity medical specialists who handled the surgery for Lauren, a two-time gold medalist and 2015 World Cup winner.ddddddddddddA league source said?Holiday?is in great shape, but the Pelicans are expected to limit his minutes as he works his way back into game condition. The Vertical reported last week that Holiday was expected to return within the week.Holiday, 26, was limited to a combined 74 games in his first two seasons in New Orleans because of right leg injuries, but he broke through in 2015-16, averaging 16.8 points and six assists with a career-high 19.7 player efficiency rating in 65 games. His season was cut short after he fractured the orbital wall of his right eye during a game, but he did not miss a game because of his right leg, besides planned absences in the first half of the season.My family comes before basketball, Holiday told the Times-Picayune in early September. Im obviously blessed to play this game and be in the position I am in, but my wife is the most important thing in the world to me. She comes before anything else.New Orleans plays Wednesday in Orlando, followed by home matchups against the Portland Trail Blazers on Friday and Charlotte Hornets on Saturday. White NFL Jerseys Cheap Disocunt Football Jerseys Wholesale NFL White Jerseys Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys 2020 Wholesale Throwback Jerseys Cheap NFL T-shirts ' ' '
