0

Aston Villa sacked their manager, Dean Smith on Sunday after his five defeats in Premier League. After sacking their current coach the Claret & Blue Army kept their eye on Roberto Martinez and Steven Gerrard for their new manager. While apart Roberto Martinez and Steven Gerrard they are keeping 4 other managers on the list. Therefore, both of their preferred choices are currently working with different team’s.

 

Villa meanwhile knows that they need to pay compensation to any of the two parties. Roberto Martinez is the current manager of Belgium. He is working with the side since 2016. So, he could be a possible move back to the Premier League. On the other hand, Steven Gerrard is the current manager of Rangers. Aston Villa CEO Christian Purslow is a good friend of Gerrard.

 

They also interested in Kasper Hjulmand the current boss of Denmark. Villa desperately required a new successor after their five consecutive defeats led by Dean Smith that brings them in the 16th position at the Premier League points table. Aston Villa will try to appoint a new manager before their match after the International break on Saturday against Brighton.

 

Roberto Martinez or Steven Gerrard or Kasper Hjulmand? Who will be the next?

 

Roberto Martinez took Belgium to no 1 FIFA Ranking in the world since his appointment in 2016. So, he could be interested to come back to the Premier League. Even he was recently linked with Newcastle United before the appointment of Eddie Howe.

 

Steven Gerrard is the most preferred choice of Villa as the replacement of Dean Smith but the most difficult one too. As he is the current head coach of the Rangers who are heading towards their second consecutive title after becoming champion in the last season.

 

So, would Gerrard will leave the club? As well as would Rangers let him go?. And how much compensation they might ask. Gerrard and Villa’s CEO Christian Purslow is good friends since their time at Liverpool. As both worked very closely together at Liverpool.

Denmark current head coach Kasper Hjulmand is also on the list as he is a close friend of Villa’s Sporting Director Johan Lange. Kasper Hjulmamd had a great run in the Euro 2020 with Denmark.
