Aston Villa: Fans react as key figure is sacked

Aston Villa: Fans react as key figure is sacked - Aston Villa

Many Aston Villa fans have reacted to the news that sporting director Jesús García Pitarch has been sacked by the club.

After a rather inconsistent last couple of months for Dean Smith’s Villa side, a final day draw with West Ham United saw the Midlands outfit fight off relegation and remain in the Premier League.

Changes at the club could now be made as Villa look to have a much improved season next time out and it has now been reported by Telegraph‘s John Percy that Pitarch, also known as Suso, has been sacked from his role at the club.

The report goes on to add that owner Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens took action to let Suso go after £140 million was spent on recruitment last summer.

Those players signed by Suso included the likes of Wesley, who cost £22.5m and Tyrone Mings, who cost Villa £20.07m.

Villa are expected to bring in a number of new faces this summer as they seek to improve on their 17th placed league standing, but the club will now seemingly look to appoint a new sporting director before they look at potential targets.

Reacting to the news of Suso’s sacking which was relayed by journalist John Percy, most fans seemed to be happy with the news of Suso’s departure. Perhaps this is unsurprising, given the amount of money he spent last summer on players who ultimately didn’t perform that well, as is highlighted by their lowly league finish.

Are you happy to see the back of Suso? Let us know in the comments section below…
