Premier League: Manager Remi Garde leaves Aston Villa

Manager Remi Garde and the Aston Villa board have reached a conclusion: the manager will leave his post by mutual consent after just four months in charge. The Villains are last in the Premier League table and 12 points away from safety. The French boss is the second Aston Villa manager to lose his job this season after Tim Sherwood got sacked in October.

The club issued a statement reading: "Manager Remi Garde has today left Aston Villa Football Club by mutual consent. The club would like to place on record its sincere thanks to Remi for all his efforts during a difficult period and wish him well in the future. Eric Black will take over as acting manager until the club appoints a new manager. There will be no further comment from the club at this stage."

Remi Garde was on a three-and-a-half year contract at Aston Villa but six consecutive defeats cut his stay short. They have won just three matches out of 31 so far this season, so it's quite clear that only a miracle of biblical proportions would save them from relegation at this stage.

You can bet on who will be the next Aston Villa boss, here are the odds for the top three candidates at Bet365:

David Moyes - 9/4
Nigel Pearson - 9/4
Mick McCarthy - 8/1

    Aston Villa is Championship club for few months already. Remi Garde didn't get any reaction of his squad to show what they are capable of and it is reasonable decision to leave the club. I don't doubt that we will see Villa again in Premiership, maybe even in season 2017/2018. Fans in Birmingham deserve better.

    Aston Villa indeed has weakest players in the league,but with good manager,they could be at least still in chase to save their status in Premier Leageu.Remi Garde did not impressed and did not managed to change anything in the way of play of Villains,so it is normal to see him and the club parted ways.

    I'm not quite sure what Villa board doing at all. First of all they have appointed a manager who has zero experience in the PL and not too impressive manager career so far( nothing personal against Remi Garde) but when you sell your best players, don't spend much at the TM and bring inexperienced manager, nothing good would derive from all that, so the Villa crashed is absolutely consequence of how the club has been managed by a Villa board of directors.

    I have to agree with sharpe, I have no clue what was going on inside Aston Villas boards heads. They hired a unknown guy (for most of the football world) with zero experience to guide bottom table team. True, Villa has player-vise worst lineup, with only few names that have quality to play in Premier League. Anyway, I wish Villa all the luck and hopefully we will see them back in higher league in year or two.

    Micah Richards, Alan Hutton, Jelon Lescott, Scott Sinclair, Gabriel Agbonlahor, Kieran Richardson, Carlos Sanchet, Chrales Nzogbia, Aly Cissokho ...thouse are all solid,experienced players with good coach they should stay in Premier League easily but unfortinetaly it didnt heapen.
