A source from Football Insider on Tuesday morning has claimed that Aston Villa manager Dean Smith is ‘fighting for his job’.
And, as to be expected, the update from a Villa source has had plenty of supporters talking on social media.
According to the recent report, Smith will come under increasing pressure if Villa’s results don’t improve prior to the next international break.
Will Smith be in charge at the end of the season?
Yes, I have faith!
No, he'll be gone!
Villa currently sit 12th in the Premier League after four rounds of fixtures with four points. They have just come off the back of a defeat to Chelsea and take on Everton, Manchester United and Tottenham before the next international break.
Should results not improve and Villa remain in their current position or below, the Villa hierarchy won’t hesitate in their search for a new manager.
Villa fans react
“If he gets sacked we’re done out here”
“DEAN SMITH GARNN TEARS IN MY EYES”
“It was coming”
“We can’t get on his back with this hard run of games coming up. We’ve had a terrible pre season with games being cancelled, players getting injured and having to replace Grealish. We just need to settle”
“Lots of our recent problems are out of smith’s hands. Nevertheless, our owners are achievers. If we’re still at a point a game by Christmas, doubt he’ll keep his job.”
