The 3:0 defeat against Fulham was the end of Aston Villa’s management’s patience with coach Steven Gerrard.
That match was the last of the Liverpool legend in charge of the club from “Villa Park”.
After the game, the club’s board took the decision to sack Gerrard, after a very poor start to the season.
And to replace him, the name of Mauricio Pochettino is being discussed.
Paddy Power reports that the Argentine coach is the favorite to take charge of Aston Villa.
We remember that Pochettino has long experience in the Premier League, managing Tottenham, while he was recently the coach of Paris Saint-Germain.
