After Aston Villa confirmed the appointment of Premier League legend Steven Gerrard to the managerial helm, they have now shared more news involving the 41-year-old which has delighted numerous fans.
Gerrard arrives at Villa Park aiming to turn around the fortunes of a team currently on a five-game losing streak in the Premier League. Indeed, their last victory came away to Manchester United in late September and a dismal run of results since then cost former boss Dean Smith his job in the Midlands.
A Scottish Premiership title winner, the Liverpudlian’s arrival signals a new era at Villa Park, and one where he will need sufficient backing both and off the field to succeed.
In an update, the club have now confirmed more news on Gerrard as his own vision for Villa begins to slowly take shape.
Following the 41-year-old into the club, the former England international’s backroom team has now been announced, with Gary McAllister (Assistant Head Coach), Michael Beale (Assistant Head Coach), Tom Culshaw (Technical Coach), Scott Mason (Lead Analyst) and Jordan Milsom (Head of Fitness and Conditioning) all arriving.
Meanwhile, some staff members from before Gerrard’s arrival like Austin MacPhee, Aaron Danks and Neil Cutler will also remain at the club.
Flocking to this update, there are a few popular names in there going by the reaction of some Villa supporters, with one man in particular certainly pleasing Villans.
Many fans are delighted that goalkeeping coach Cutler is set to stay, with one fan calling this decision ‘big’, and it’s little wonder given his reputation at the club. Indeed, current Villa number one Emiliano Martinez called him ‘one of the best coaches in England’ (avfc.co.uk).
