Aston Villa chief reacts to Gerrard sacking claim as Tuchel ‘shortlisted’

Aston Villa chief reacts to Gerrard sacking claim as Tuchel ‘shortlisted’

Tommy Jordan, Aston Villa’s communications director, has responded to a report claiming that Steven Gerrard would be fired following Chelsea’s 2-0 win at Villa Park.

The former Liverpool midfielder’s future at the West Midlands club is becoming increasingly uncertain following a string of underwhelming results.

Despite spending around £60 million in the summer transfer window, the Villains are currently 16th in the Premier League, just one point above the relegation zone.

Despite giving Gerrard’s side a run for their money, Mason Mount added to the misery with two well-taken goals to extend Graham Potter’s five-game unbeaten streak.

As the home crowd, clearly dissatisfied, began to leave early, questions about the Villa manager’s future were quickly raised.

Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has been identified as the primary candidate to replace Gerrard, according to the Telegraph.

In the event that Villa is unable to secure the Argentine, Thomas Tuchel is said to be on the shortlist. 

The former Chelsea manager is said to have turned down managerial positions with two Premier League clubs.

Among the flurry of speculation, Football Insider claimed that Gerrard had already been fired as Villa head coach. 

The Villa’s communications director, however, has since clarified that this is not the case, dismissing the report.

Jordan tweeted: “How many times can you publish complete lies before people unfollow the account? Not sure why anyone actually follows this account. If you do, you shouldn’t.”

Tuchel has been out of work since Todd Boehly replaced him with Graham Potter.

Chelsea fans will be disappointed to see their former manager take another job in the Premier League despite their unusually close relationship.

He was a ray of hope for many Blues fans, guiding the club through both highs and lows.

Tuchel will undoubtedly have a number of clubs vying for his signature, so it’s no surprise that he’s already lined up with a new job.
