By on December 29, 2010 - 27 views

Aston Villa striker John Carew made a dubious excuse for missing the Premier League match against Manchester City at Eastlands yesterday. Villa boss Gerard Houlier told reporters that the Norwegian striker had blamed the snow for his lack of fitness prior to kick-off.

“John Carew would have been in the squad but he came to me and told me he was not fit enough,” said Houllier.

“We gave the players two days off after the Wigan game. He went to Norway and got stuck… I have to accept the explanation. There was snow everywhere.”
