Pretty sure in this article, Kevin MacDonald is sort of hinting that Villa are looking over and above his level for the next manager?
Matthew Kendrick at The Birmingham Mail spoke with Big Mac who laughed at the suggestion that Maradona was interested saying it wouldn’t be his choice!
However, much like Ronald Koeman said Villa has got a big name:
‘I think Aston Villa is regarded as a major club, as any Premier League club is. There will be lots of applications because everyone will think they can push this club back up to the top. Whether it is one of the applicants or someone already in a job, the players` own pride should tell them to play as well as possible because any manager who comes in will know what has gone on.’
We’ll soon find out, the next week or so will be crucial to Villa and I’m sure we are all hoping and praying the right man comes in. Be nice if we could all unite as fans again – for a short while at least!
