- Head coach leaves Villa Park after three years at the helm
- Kasper Hjulmand, Ralph Hasenhüttl and Steven Gerrard linked
Dean Smith has been sacked as the head coach of Aston Villa 11 games into the Premier League season.
Villa have endured an underwhelming start to the campaign, with Friday’s loss to Southampton – the club’s fifth league defeat in succession – apparently the final straw. “This year we have not seen the continuous improvement in results, performances and league position which we have all been looking for,” said the club’s CEO, Christian Purslow.
