For the past 3 seasons Aston Villa has been struggling trying to get out of the bottom spots of the Premier League and the fans of the club have agreed with the decision of the club owner Randy Lerner to sell Aston Villa.
Randy Lerner took control of the club in 2006 when he paid €63 million but the American entrepreneur announced a few days ago that Aston Villa is up for sale with a price tag of €200 million.
The fans of Aston Villa are desperate for a new someone to buy the club and get ready for the upcoming season.
A statement from AVST read: “AVST wish Mr Lerner the very best in his future endeavors. We are sure all Villa supporters appreciate the great respect he has shown for the club’s traditions and heritage during his time here. We are also sure that, with this in mind, he will make it a consideration of the utmost importance that these traditions should continue to be respected by whomever he passes his custodianship to’’.
“We would ask the sale is completed as quickly as possible in order that the new owner can put his team in place, and make the required changes to ensure Aston Villa become a competitive force on the field again.”
Martin O’Neill was in charge of the squad from 2006 until 2010 and during his time at the head of the team Aston Villa managed on securing consistent 6th place position in the Premier League but the club suffered a huge twist when the Irish coach left Villa and Paul Lambert took over.
Since Paul Lambert’s appointment as the head coach of the club, they have struggled just trying to escape the bottom relegation zone which is why he has been under a lot of criticism recently and his future in Aston Villa is in jeopardy.
