Aston Villa manager Dean Smith may prioritise trying to bring in a coach who has worked in Europe, as reported by The Daily Mail’s Tom Collomosse on Twitter.
Recently suffering from the departures of both John Terry and Richard O’Kelly from the coaching staff, there is a void at Villa which will urgently need to be filled as we embark on the new campaign.
Is Smith right to seek a coach that has worked in Europe?
Now, the former Brentford manager looks set to start making tracks in regard to filling the role. Speaking to his Twitter following, Daily Mail journalist Collomosse stated:
“Would expect Smith to add to his #avfc coaching staff after departures of Terry and O’Kelly. Perhaps an innovative appt – someone who has worked in other leagues, different cultures – rather than someone steeped in UK game”.
Taking a step away from their usual approach, this news is bound to create a sense of intrigue within the next few weeks at Villa Park.
In light of this news, loads of Aston Villa diehards took to social media to offer up their opinions on the new coaching pursuit.
Aston Villa FC fans react:
Replying to popular Aston Villa fan outlet villareport, here is what some fans had to say about the situation:
“Fully back them though. Lange raised an eyebrow with me but so far he’s got it spot on. As a club we know what we’re doing”
