Stan Collymore has told Aston Villa’s owners to sack Dean Smith and appoint a ‘big-name manager’. Villa are in deep trouble in the Premier League following Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers on home soil. Smith’s side are without a victory in their last eight league matches and now face a daunting double-header against Liverpool and Manchester United. However, former Villa striker Collymore reckons the club should act now to give themselves a shot at survival.
Stan Collymore said “The big question for all Aston Villa fans now is: what’s the plan? Do they want to keep Dean Smith and John Terry but lose Jack Grealish and John McGinn? I’d throw the kitchen sink at getting a big-name manager now. It’d be one last hit at staying up and if a new boss were able to do that then those two mercurial talents might just want to stay and play for him next season.”
