Joleon Lescott is no stranger to media faux-pas, with his infamous sports car Tweet earlier this season a prime example. However, after seeing his side relegated following a 1-0 defeat away to Manchester United, the Aston Villa defender gave a rather odd interview to BBC, one which will leave fans of the Villans rather perturbed, to say the least.

Speaking after the defeat, the centre-half spoke of his relief at finally being relegated. He said:

We knew before the game what we had to do but coming to Old Trafford is never easy no matter what situation you’re in. Throughout the game we showed a level of pride that there’s probably not been enough of throughout the season.

It’s about results
