Profile

In recent times Aston Villa have been chopping and changing managers for fun, with Roberto Di Mattebecoming the latest gaffer to lose his job after he was axed after winning just one of his 11 Championship matches in charge of the club. Steve Bruce replaced the Italian in the dugout, but despite a bright start, he has since come under pressure following a woeful run of form.

Up until recently Aston Villa were in an elite group of seven clubs who had been in the Premier League since its inauguration in 1992. However, the club's 29-year stay in the top-flight (including the years preceding the Premier League) came to a miserable end in 2015/16 after they suffered the dreaded drop out of the division.
