Aston Villa fans have reacted to a report claiming that manager Dean Smith will remain in charge until the end of the season.
The Midlands based side sit in the bottom three of the Premier League and have their top flight status very much hanging in the balance.
A poor restart to the 2019/2020 campaign after the pandemic has Villa struggling and the 1-0 defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers at the weekend further enhanced their problems on the pitch.
With such poor form, Smith’s time in charge of the club has been questioned, despite helping the Villa Park outfit to promotion from the Championship play-offs last season.
Despite those question marks, Villa have reportedly handed Smith a vote of confidence and will stick with him until the end of the season.
Fans have now reacted to that news which was relayed by journalist John Percy of The Telegraph and shared via Twitter account @villareport. It seems that opinion is split, some think it is the right decision to keep him, probably due to the fact he got them promoted and that there is barely any of the season left. However others aren’t as keen, likely due to their lowly league position…
Best decision, stick with him. He’s one of the ones who cares

It’s the players that have let him down. If it wasn’t for mings, horihane, mcginn and jack we would struggle. Bad recruitment and that’s what needs to be looked at.

Good, absolutely madness even considering sacking him for so many reasons.
