Aston Villa will not be celebrating their Premier League survival despite getting the "job done", according to manager Tim Sherwood.
Villa are not even holding an end-of-season awards dinner this year and will not throw their players a party to mark their escape from the drop, because Sherwood believes such a lowly finish is nothing to celebrate for a club of their size.
Sherwood insists only victory over Arsenal in next week's FA Cup final will merit a celebration.
It's 'job done', as far as I'm concerned.They brought me into the club to win Premier League survival and we did that. The team had won five games in 25 before I came in. We needed to match that to stay in the division and we've managed to do that.
I think it would have been in bad taste to celebrate like that and I don't think a club like Aston Villa should be celebrating escaping relegation, to be perfectly honest.
It's a big relief but if we're celebrating escaping relegation every year then we aren't doing something right.
