Sherwood was axed just eight months after replacing Paul Lambert in February. Sherwood had kept Villa up last season as well as leading them to the FA Cup final in May, where they lost 4-0 to Arsenal.

Ex-Lyon boss Remi Garde is the favorite to replace him, and Sherwood released a statement via the League Managers’ Association following his departure from Villa Park:

“I am very disappointed that I will not be able to carry on in my role as manager of Aston Villa.

“I knew when I took on the role that it would be a big challenge, but it proved to be one I greatly enjoyed and I know I have learned a lot from this experience.

“Obviously, the initial priority was to stay in the Premier League, but beating Liverpool in the FA Cup semi at Wembley and then leading the team out for the final was an achievement and experience that I will treasure for the rest of my career.

“I’d like to thank my coaching staff and the staff throughout the club for their dedication, the Villa fans for their passionate support and the players, who gave everything during my time at the club. I wish the club all the best for the rest of the season and indeed for the future.”

    Really gutted this didn’t work out for you and us Tim. As a Villa fan, I was at Wembley that day we beat Liverpool, it was a truly special atmosphere that day. myself and many other villa fans thought it was the beginning of something exciting. Unfortunately the Prem league is unforgiving and 8 losses in 10 makes positions untenable. Wish you all the best and thank you for keeping us up last year.
