EPL: Steven Gerrard tipped to coach another club after Aston Villa sack
Former Birmingham City player, Curtis Woodhouse, has picked former Aston Villa manager Steven Gerrard to succeed Jesse Marsch as Leeds United’s head coach.
Gerrard was sacked by Aston Villa after they lost 3-0 against Fulham in Thursday’s Premier League tie. Aston Villa currently sit in the 17th position on the Premier League table, while Leeds are in the 16th position.
Unless Leeds improves, Marsch could soon find himself on the chopping block, and Woodhouse believes Gerrard could be his worthy replacement. When a fan on Twitter commented that he would take Gerrard at Leeds if Marsch was dismissed, Woodhouse replied by saying: “I think he’d really suit that job.”
The fan’s comment came under Woodhouse’s post regarding Gerrard’s dismissal, in which he blamed Aston Villa players for simply going through the motions. Woodhouse tweeted: “Gutted for Stevie G, must kill him watching some of these players go through the motions when he was all in every second of every game he ever played. Legend, he will be back.”
