Two managers being considered by Aston Villa as Dean Smith replacement

Aston Villa

An insight into two of the managers being considered by Aston Villa to replace Dean Smith has been provided on Sunday afternoon.

Smith sacked

Dean Smith would be the latest Premier League manager relieved of his duties on Sunday.

Aston Villa confirmed that their boss had left the club, with a search for his replacement underway:

Smith leaves Aston Villa in some pretty poor form. Despite attempting to replace Jack Grealish over the summer with the signings of Leon Bailey, Danny Ings and Emi Buendia, it has so far not worked out too well for the Villans.

After losing to Southampton on Friday, Villa sit 17th in the Premier League table, on just 10 points from 11 outings.

They also have one of the worst defensive records in the English top-flight.

Aston Villa eyeing Smith replacements

Now, just hours after Smith was sent on his way, an insight into exactly who Aston Villa are considering to replace him has been provided.

According to the Telegraph, the board at Villa Park are looking at the potential appointments of Steven Gerrard and Ralph Hasenhuttl:

A move for Gerrard would make sense, as it would give him a chance to prove himself in England before taking on a position at a top club.

It is, however, hard to see Hasenhuttl departing Southampton for Villa, with such a move not exactly much of a step up.
