Premier League side Aston Villa have just announced the sacking of their head coach Dean Smith after following the club’s poor run in the English top-flight this season.
The Villans lost all of their last five games in the Premier League and are fifteenth on the table with ten points out of 11 matches.
“Aston Villa Football Club can confirm that the Club have parted company with Head Coach Dean Smith”, AVFC wrote on their official website.
“The Board would like to sincerely thank Dean for his many excellent achievements, on and off the pitch, during this time.
“Everyone knows how much Aston Villa means to Dean and his family. He has represented the Club with distinction and dignity – universally liked and respected by everybody associated with Aston Villa – our staff, players and supporters alike. We wish him the very best.
“The process of replacing Dean will now begin and the Club will update supporters in due course.”
