ASTON Villa fans, I have a sinking feeling for you…
Villa boss Alex McLeish is planning on playing lumbering ex-England striker Emile Heskey as a central defender.
McLeish has been gushing over the goal-shy forward’s ability, likening him to German legend Franz Beckenbaur.
McLeish said: “We now know what Emile can do. He can play in any position. I could even play him at the back without any fears.
“We played him at centre-back last week in training and he was spraying the ball about as if I was watching Franz Beckenbauer.
“He is a brilliant all-round player, he understands the game and we need him in the squad.”
