Liverpool FC Legend Steven Gerrard Becomes Aston Villa new Manager. Steven Gerrard who has been in the talks with Aston Villa football club, has finally been appointed as the club’s head coach, on a contract that will be valid for three-and-a-half-year.
Villa sacked their boss last week and didn’t take long to pen a three-and-a-half-year deal with the former Liverpool midfielder. Gerrard however, left his role as Rangers manager to replace Dean Smith, who’s fate with Villa was sealed last weekend after having five successive defeats.
41-year-old Steven Gerrard who had been in charge of Rangers FC since mid-2018, ended Celtic’s nine-year reign as champions, led his club to the Scottish Premiership title last season, while giving his acceptance speech, said;
“Aston Villa is a club with a rich history and tradition in English football and I am immensely proud to become its new head coach.
“In my conversations with Nassef, Wes and the rest of the Board, it was apparent how ambitious their plans are for the club and I am looking forward to helping them achieve their aims.
“I would like to express my sincere gratitude to everybody associated with Glasgow Rangers for giving me the opportunity to manage such an iconic football club.
“Helping them secure a record-breaking 55th league title will always hold a special place in my heart. I would like to wish the players, staff and supporters the very best for the future.”
Gerrard’s first match as Aston Villa’s boss would be against Brighton & Hove Albion on November 20, he has some big shoes to fill, as Villa is currently two points above the relegation zone after 11 games of their 2021 EPL campaign, at 16th position
