Aston Villa sack manager Paul Lambert


Aston Villa have announced the departure of manager Paul Lambert.

The 45-year-old replaced Alex McLeish in June 2012 but following a poor run of results, which have left Villa in the bottom three of the Barclays Premier League, the club announced they have parted company with the Scot.

A statement on the club's official website said: "Aston Villa Football Club has parted company this evening with manager Paul Lambert.

"First-team coach Scott Marshall and goalkeeping coach Andy Marshall will continue to prepare the squad for Sunday's FA Cup tie with Leicester City at Villa Park.

"The club would also like to place on record its thanks to Paul and take this opportunity to wish him every success in the future.

"The club will announce a new manager in due course. There will be no further comment from the club at this stage."

    Done and dusted. Best bit of business RL and company have done this season. Now hopefully Sherwood is in the shadows waiting to be announced. UTV

      Not sure why in the world you would want Sherwood. What has he proven other than that he has a “back-to-English-basics” mentality and no understanding whatsoever of the modern game?

        He’s my pick of the bunch that has been rumored so far. I don’t want someone like Rafa who is so used to managing big money clubs that you can’t tell if he is managing or just buying wins. Moyes would be good too.

        Who would you pick?

          NOT Sherwood! This is the same guy who thought Adebayor was the ticket to success. Mr. sit back and cross your fingers.
