Villa 3-1 Hull: Lambert hails clinical goal hero Weimann


Paul Lambert believes Andi Weimann will only get better with experience as he hailed his two-goal hero.

Weimann's brace was huge as Villa defeated Hull 3-1 to all but guarantee safety in the Barclays Premier League.

Lambert insists that fans must remember that Weimann is still only a young starlet, having essentially played senior football for just three seasons.

He thinks the sky's the limit for the fab forward as he gets older.

Lambert said: "I thought Andi was brilliant.

"His two goals were probably long overdue when you look at his work ethic.

"He has a great mentality. He has an incredible desire to play the game of football.

"Wherever you play Andi, you seem to get the same consistency level.

"Today, I decided to put him up top with Gabby. The two of them started great. I am delighted for Andi and his two goals.

"He is probably a better natural striker. But he can play around Benteke and Kozak, no problem at all. He has done a great job for me in wide areas too.

"Last season he scored a right handful, playing with Benteke and Agbonlahor. Everyone was talking about them.

"The thing is that Andi has only stepped out of the academy a few years ago. He's not long been a pro footballer as such. He will get better."
