    Joleon Lescott says he wants to stay at Aston Villa and help the club he has supported since he was a boy return to the Premier League. Villas relegation after 28 years in the top flight was confirmed with a 1-0 defeat at Manchester United on Saturday.Their future remains uncertain, with Eric Black still caretaker manager and no permanent successor yet on the horizon, but Lescott has vowed to fight on through the most difficult time in the clubs history. The fall and fall of Villa Aston Villas fall has been years in the making, but how did it happen? Of course I want to be part of the battle. Im here for as long as Aston Villa want me, he told Sky Sports.I was a Villa fan growing up, so it hurts as much as some of those fans out there, even though they might not think so.As an individual I can only take my part in the blame but I dont think its ever as bad as what people portray in the press. But were not going to dwell on that and use it as an excuse. Aston Villa caretaker manager Eric Black says it is a difficult day for the club Weve not been good enough this season and thats why we are where we are.Villas 24th defeat of the season compounded one of the worst Premier League records a side has put together, despite a recently-appointed new board of directors gutting the club of its failing staff, fans have continued to protest in earnest.Lescott said: The criticism has been a bit of both; warranted and, at times, unfair. Throughout the season we have given reasons for people to jump on us, but there hasnt been so many reasons at times.But its part of football and we have to take it on the chin. When things are going well you love it but when things arent going well its horrible to be a part of. Its a tough time at the minute and we owe it to the club and the fans to keep striving forward. Aston Villa succumbed to their 24th defeat of the season at Old Trafford In the back of our minds is to get promotion next season, but weve got some games left. Eric has come in and done a great job. Its disappointing but we showed a level of pride and desire today that probably hasnt been there enough throughout the season, and its led to us being relegated.Now its been confirmed that we are going to go down, hopefully its a weight off our shoulders and we can play with a level of freedom and give these fans what they deserve.Weve got some home matches left and, as an individual and collectively, were still determined to put performances in to honour the fans.
