Aston Villa: Fans react to Steven Gerrard comments

Aston Villa: Fans react to Steven Gerrard comments -Aston Villa

New Aston Villa manager Steven Gerrard admitted he is keen to work on the club’s defensive structure.

And a number of Villa fans have been reacting to his comments on social media.

Gerrard was officially appointed as Dean Smith’s replacement last Thursday but began work on Monday. He sat down with Villa’s official media team for his first interview, which is available to view in full here.

How many signings should Gerrard make in January?









One snippet from that was shared on Twitter by @villareport, with Gerard keen to make some tweaks on Villa out of possession.

“One thing I’d like to instil & improve on is the structure of the team from a defensive point of view. Out of possession, our distances, our shape, & what we do to regain the ball is very important to me.”

Villa conceded 13 goals in Smith’s final five games in charge and have kept just three league clean sheets during the current campaign, and it seems as if Gerrard wants to make his new side hard to beat ahead of his first game against Brighton this weekend.
