Steven Gerrard has been appointed the new manager of Aston Villa, signing a two-and-a-half-year deal.

 

The Premier League side will pay a compensation of between £3.25 million to £4 million to Rangers for Gerrard and his assistant Gary McAllister.

 

Gerrard, 41, has been in charge of Rangers since June 2018.

 

The former Liverpool captain led the club to the Scottish Premiership title last season, ending Celtic’s nine-year reign as champions.

 

He replaces Dean Smith who was sacked on Sunday, following a run of five successive Premier League defeats.

 

The club sit 16th in the Premier League table, two points above the relegation zone after 11 games of their campaign.

 

Gerrard’s first match in charge will be the Premier League fixture against Brighton on November 20.

    wow, that’s a great one but people like me wouldn’t have known that he has been in Rangers as their manager for this long if not for climaxtrend.
    Thanks for the update

  2. Thanks for the update Climaxtrend the Manchester City playmaker, Kevin De Bruyne, has claimed they trained for only 10 minutes, before they beat Manchester United 2-0 before the international break.

    The Premier League champions completely dominated their rivals despite the low scoreline at Old Trafford.

    An Eric Bailly own goal and a Bernardo Silva strike sealed all three points for Pep Guardiola’s men.

    De Bruyne has now claimed Guardiola initially had no idea how to prepare for United.

    “The day before a game we usually train tactically, based on how the opponent plays.

    “But before United, Pep said: ‘We don’t know how they are going to play. We shall see’. And we stopped training after 10 minutes or so.

    “Often Pep knows how the opponent is going to play. This time he didn’t know, so he didn’t know what to do.

    “We have done what we always do, but he didn’t know beforehand if they would play with five at the back, or with four, or with a diamond in the middle, or with three up front,” he told the MidMid podcast.
