Hoping for Tuchel:
Aston Villa fire team manager Gerrard
Birmingham For Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard, the Premier League adventure as a coach is over for the time being. His club Aston Villa released him after a defeat against Fulham.
The English Premier League club Aston Villa has reacted to the weak start to the season and fired team manager Steven Gerrard. “We thank Steven for his hard work and commitment and wish him all the best for the future,” the club wrote just a few hours after the 0:3 (0:1) defeat at Fulham.
In the English media, Thomas Tuchel is also traded as a potential successor. The ex-Bundesliga coach was fired at Chelsea in early September. Other candidates circulating include the names Mauricio Pochettino and Unai Emery.
Liverpool legend Gerrard took over as manager at Aston Villa in November last year. The Birmingham club is 17th in the table this season with just nine points from eleven games.
