Aston Villa’s crazy numbers to attract new manager

Steven Gerrard will not be on the Aston Villa bench this weekend to host Brentford. The former number 8 of Liverpool was relieved of his functions Thursday evening following a heavy defeat on the lawn of Fulham (3-0). He pays for the poor results of his now ex-club, stuck at the bottom of the table with a 17th place after 11 league games. Despite this complicated start to the season, the management of the Villans still displays great ambition.

She absolutely wants a renowned coach to take over. Mauricio Pochettino was the first to be linked with the Birmingham club. The Argentinian has the advantage of being free since leaving PSG last May, and of knowing the Premier League very well, having led Southampton (2013/2014) and Tottenham (2014-2019), which he even led in the Champions League final, just months before being ousted. Problem, it doesn’t look very hot.

An envelope of £100 million for transfers!

According to the latest reports from England, Pochettino is interested, but he yearns for more than a side fighting to stay in the Premier League. Aston Villa still has a slim hope. It must be said that the club is ready to go all out to convince the technician. According to The telegrapha salary of £10m, or €11.4m, was offered to him, in addition to an envelope of £100m (€114m) for the next two transfer windows, this winter and the coming summer.

Pochettino hesitates, while Thomas Tuchel, whose name has been mentioned, is obviously no longer in the race. Brentford manager Thomas Frank, who takes on Villa this weekend, is also in the small papers, while Unai Emery appears uninterested. Finally, Ruben Amorim appears to be a viable option. His exit clause from Sporting is significant, but does not seem to refute the English club, determined to bring a top manager to their supporters.
