Steven Gerrard Is Announced As The Next Head Coach Of Aston Villa
Aston Villa Football Club is happy to announce Steven Gerrard’s appointment as our new Head Coach.
Last season, Steven Gerrard led Glasgow Rangers to the Scottish Premiership title, with the team being undefeated in the league.
The 41-year-old has won many fans in the game for his efforts in reviving the Glasgow giants’ fortunes while also establishing an appealing, attacking style of play.
Touchaheart Nigeria reports that Gerrard, who had an illustrious playing career with Liverpool and England, joins Rangers in 2018 after working as an Academy Coach with the Reds.
CEO Christian Purslow said: “The Board of Aston Villa are delighted to appoint Steven as our new Head Coach.
“Since moving into coaching after his illustrious playing career, Steven began by managing and developing top young players in the Liverpool FC Academy which is experience we value highly at Aston Villa.
“He then took the brave decision to test himself in the intense and high pressured environment of the Scottish Old Firm. His subsequent achievement in winning the Premiership title with Glasgow Rangers really caught our eye as did his experience in Europe.
“It has been very clear in our discussions with him that Steven’s coaching ambitions, philosophy and values entirely match those of Aston Villa.
“We are excited he has agreed to lead us in the next phase of our ambitious plans as we look to build on the progress made since Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens took over the club in 2018.”
