It has now been confirmed by multi award winning radio and television broadcaster and former England international Stan Collymore, that the time for Aston Villa manager Remi Garde is nearly up. The Frenchman signed for the Premier League outfit in November last year replacing former boss Tim Sherwood, when the team were struggling and at the bottom of the points table and was expected to turn things around for them. His main job at that point of time was probably to avoid relegation, as the club were in a huge mess back then.
However, despite his best efforts it seems now that things have not really improved at Villa Park, as the club are still struggling at the bottom and it seems will be heading out of England’s top flight of football next term. Villa have at present played a total of 31 games with a tally of just 16 points, with 3 wins, 7 draws and 21 losses to their name so far this season in the league.
Garde has failed to deliver and their chances of survival are all but gone now. The fans and owners are not happy and Collymore confirmed this news via his Twitter account. In a recently made Tweet, he confirmed that the 49 year old former Lyon boss would be leaving the club by mid-week and that Kevin MacDonald/Gordon Cowans and co would take charge of the club till May.
If this news is true, more tough times for Villa are set to follow after a really poor season this time around. It will be interesting to see how things develop and whether they can get back to their best form in the near future. Here is the Tweet made by Collymore that confirms this claim:
Remi Garde, reported widely and by reputable colleagues, will be gone by midweek.
Kev Mac/Sid and co to assist till May.
