Aston Villa set to sacked Remi Garde
Aston Villa is ready to sack Remi Garde with the Frenchman unwilling to leave on his own.
Aston Villa will have to pay around £2million if they want to severe the ties with the French manager. Garde has been at the club for only 5 months following the departure of the former manager Tim Sherwood.
Garde was brought in a 3-year deal with the objective being to keep Aston Villa in the Premier League. The Frenchman has managed only 2 wins in the last 20 league games. Defeat last Saturday against Swansea has in most likelihood condemned Aston Villa to relegation. The team is currently 12 points from the safety spot with only 7 games remaining in the current season.
There is growing speculation that Villa’s manager will be sacked after the international break and that he will be replaced by Nigel Pearson, Sean Dyche or Steve Bruce.
New Aston Villa chairman Steve Hollis is expected to hold talks with Remi Garde during the international break and hopes to find a mutual agreement about the club future. Aston Villa is keen to prepare themselves for the Championship so as to be able to mount a serious challenge next season for promotion in the top flight.
It is believed that the relationship between Garde and Aston Villa board turn sour when he was not given money to bring in new players during the transfer window. This was one of the conditions for Remi Garde to take charge of the club but the owner Randy Lerner refused to invest in the club in January after back-to-backs defeat against Norwich and Sunderland.
Despite all these rumors, Garde has supervised Villa’s training on Tuesday for players that are not on international duties and hope that he will stay until the end of the season.
