Houllier Re-Writes the Villa Rule Book Pending Players Approval

The Daily Mail has reported today that Gerard Houllier has made changes to Villa’s PFA approved code of conduct in a bid to improve the discipline that has marred his first disappointing season at the helm. According to the paper’s report ‘at least two of his players are believed to be seeking advice before signing up to the new regime.’ The Frenchman has upset a number of players at the club as he looks to change the way the team play and the club is run from top to bottom. Centre-back pairing Collins and Dunne are the latest to have spoken out against the current regime, albeit internally, and the 63-year-old is keen to stamp his authority on the club as they plummet dangerously close to the relegation zone. One of the apparent changes is to enforce a ban on the use of mobile phones in the dressing room. A club spokesman has since stated: ‘These were alterations to the standard rule-book that the manager wanted to make. It is not a new code of conduct. These amendments have been presented to the players.’
