Tim Sherwood was relieved from his duty as Aston Villa manager on Sunday after Villa starting the season with only one win on 10 games.
Villa suffered defeat to Swansea City on Saturday, a loss that put them in last place in the Premier League standings. The next day it was announced on the team’s website that Sherwood had gotten sacked by the club.
“I am very disappointed that I will not be able to carry on in my role as manager of Aston Villa,” Sherwood said in a statement.
“I knew when I took on the role that it would be a big challenge but it proved to be one I greatly enjoyed and I know I have learned a lot from this experience.
“The initial priority was to stay in the Premier League but beating Liverpool in the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley and then leading the team out for the final was an achievement and experience I will treasure for the rest of my career.
“I’d like to thank my coaching staff and the staff throughout the club for their dedication, the Villa fans for their passionate support and the players, who gave everything during my time at the club. I wish the club all the best for the rest of the season and indeed for the future.”
Villa has not made any announcement regarding who will take over the club, but names like Brendan Rodgers and David Moyes have been mentioned in the media as possible candidates.
