Steven Gerrard Premier League Manager Sacked- English Premier League side Aston Villa have sacked Steven Gerrard after losing his last game against Fulham 3-0 at the Craven Cottage. The former Liverpool midfielder joined the club last season but has failed to get good results in the first ten games this season. Gerrard’s departure comes as no surprise after a disappointing start to the season by the Villans.
The former Liverpool midfielder leaves after just 11 months in charge and is the fourth Premier League manager to depart so far in the 2022-23 campaign after Thomas Tuchel, Scott Parker and Bruno Lage. Villa have won just twice in the league this season and only sit above the relegation zone on goals scored. Gerrard succeeded Dean Smith as Villa manager in November 2021 after leaving his role at Rangers. But the former England and Liverpool midfielder, 42, led Villa to only 13 wins from 40 games during his 11 months in charge. The former Liverpool and England star was expected to push Villa higher up the table this season, but instead he leaves with the club firmly embroiled in a relegation battle.
Gerrard won the Scottish title with Rangers in 2021, ending Celtic’s long period of dominance. But he has been unable to build on that impressive work since moving to Villa Park, failing to win over the club’s supporters with some lacklustre performances.
