Aston Villa fans laugh off talk of Eddie Howe to Villa Park

Aston Villa fans laugh off talk of Eddie Howe to Villa Park

Aston Villa fans everywhere are looking around to see who their next manager will be. Steven Bruce was sacked last Wednesday following the 3-3 draw with Preston and now, according to The Daily Record, Aston Villa’s chief executive Christian Purslow has assembled a six-man shortlist of managers who he wants which includes, Thierry Henry, Brendan Rodgers and Eddie Howe.

Most Villa fans have loved the inclusion of Eddie Howe on their shortlist and it’s given them a good laugh this morning. The likelihood of Howe leaving Bournemouth is minimal, the young coach has worked wonders on the south coast with the Cherries and it would truly be a miracle if any Championship was able to poach the 40-year-old tactician from The Vitality Stadium anytime soon.

However, if Purslow does manage to convince Howe to give up life in the Premier League and drop back down to the Championship then it will be a touch of genius. Howe’s Bournemouth are currently flying high in 6th place in the table, ahead of the likes of Manchester United and Everton and they’re only four points of the league leaders Manchester City and Liverpool. Villa will likely end up appointing Thierry Henry or Brendan Rodgers, but one thing that is almost guaranteed is that the Villa Park job won’t be turning Eddie Howe’s head.

The Villa fans are well aware that they won’t be appointing Eddie Howe anytime soon and are just enjoying the fact that Purslow seems to think he can poach the Bournemouth man.
