After struggling Aston Villa sacked their manager Steve Bruce on Wednesday, fans have taken to Twitter to call for his replacement.
Many Villa fans want Premier League legend Thierry Henry to take over at Villa Park, with many bookmakers having him favourite to take over.
The Frenchman is currently assistant coach for the Belgium national team under Roberto Martinez, and although he recently signed a new contract, he may be tempted by the offer of managing a club with the prestige of Aston Villa. The former striker helped take Belgium to third place in this year’s World Cup, but surely would want to move above his current rank.
After leading Villa to the play offs last year, Bruce has only managed three wins out of his opening 11 matches, and that was deemed not good enough for the board.

Terry or Henry would get the place bouncing….either of those would need a decent coach though as our players look bereft of any kind of tactical coaching

Bye Brucey at #Villa. Sad but inevitable. Who’s next? Henry? A champagne manager needs a champagne budget. I’d go for Brentford’s Dean Smith. He’s positive, a true Claret and Blue and went to school with my Missus so he knows all about dealing with demanding Brummies #VTID #UTV
