And a number of Villa fans have been sharing their positive thoughts regarding the 64-year-old on social media.
Favre or Gerrard?
Gerrard all day
Villa fans react
@Total_Villa staked their claim on Twitter regarding Favre, labelling him as an option that ‘stands out’. This is what these Villa fans had to say in reply, with many also hoping to see the club firm up their interest in Favre.
“This is more like it”
“This guy out of all the names has the best CV for the Villa job. Saved Borussia Monchengladbach from relegation. Took Hertha Berlin & Nice from midtable to Europe. Managed Dortmund to 2 x 2nd placed finishes and also won Swiss league a couple of times”
“Top of the list”
“Hard to disagree that Favre is the stand out option, definitely an upgrade tactically, a safe pair of hands and someone who can progress us over multiple seasons with good recruitment rather than a quick fix”
“Would be my pick honestly”
“Yep! Said this from day one… Lucien Favre or AVB for me. All day long.”
