Former English and Liverpool’s midfielder and recent Rangers’ head coach Steven Gerrard is close to signing a deal with Aston Villa. The negotiations are in their final stages. The English specialist is expected to sign a three-year contract with the Birmingham-based club.
Aston Villa is on the hunt for a head coach after firing Dean Smith. In addition to Gerrard, the list of potential candidates included the names of Roberto Martinez from the Belgian national team and Kasper Hjulmand from the Danish national team.
The Liverpool legend has led the Rangers since 2018. Last season, the team under his leadership won the Scottish Championship and played in the playoffs of the Europa League.
After 11 rounds, Aston Villa is ranked 16th in the Premier League. In the next match, the Lions will play with Brighton. Want to know more about football and don’t miss the important news? Subscribe to footbal24.in and receive the latest updates to your email.
