Aston Villa have announced Steven Gerrard as new manager as seen in a statement on the club’s website on Thursday.

 

The former Liverpool captain joined Villa from Glasgow Rangers which he guided to the Scottish Premiership title last season

 

Speaking on the appointment, CEO Christian Purslow said the 41-year-old has the experience which the club values.

 

He was quoted by Villa website, “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.”

Helping them secure a record-breaking 55th league title will always hold a special place in my heart. I would like to wish the players, staff and supporters the very best for the future.”
