Transfers News: Aston Villa linked to Mauricio Pochettino

    Aston Villa are interested in appointing former Tottenham Hotspur and Paris Saint-Germain manager Mauricio Pochettino as their new manager, according to Football Attendant. Steven Gerrard is the Villa manager at the moment, but the Premier League club bosses are considering their options.

    The report says that although Gerrard’s position at Villa is not immediately threatened, the club’s US owners, Naseef Sawiris and Wes Edens, are willing to sack the Liverpool legend if results do not improve significantly before the start of the 2022 World Cup finals in Qatar mid-November. Villa is in 14th place in the Premier League standings at the moment with seven points from seven games, just one point above the relegation zone.

    Pochettino is currently without a managerial position following his departure from PSG at the end of last season. The former Tottenham and Southampton boss is reportedly willing to speak with Villa and is aware of their interest in him.
