Who Will be The Next Aston Villa manager

A list of the potential candidates should the Aston Villa job become available today based on previous people appearing in the betting odds when the position was vacant last time, to others with a profile that would fit the club in terms of the managers they have appointed most recently.

Ruben Amorim

Image: BBC

Ruben Amorim (6/4) had been supported for the Aston Villa job before Unai Emery was appointed. The current Sporting CP manager has been at the Portuguese club since March 2020. In his first season in charge, he guided the Portuguese club to their first Primera Liga title in 19 years. 

Kjetil Knutsen

Image: romapress

Here we have another manager regularly linked to English football; when Brighton was looking for a new boss after Graham Potter went to Chelsea, Knutsen was for a time favourite for the job. He is currently the manager of Norwegian side FK/Bodo Glimt, who have punched above their weight, winning back-to-back League titles. His growing reputation will likely see him manage a British team in this decade. 

Michael Beale

Highly regarded assistant To Steven Gerrard at Glasgow Rangers and Aston Villa, before being appointed in his first full managerial role at QPR. From there it was onto Glasgow Rangers but that project only lasted ten months before he was sacked.

Any vacancy at Villa may come a little too early in his burgeoning career, although the bookmakers did like his chances installing him towards the head of the October 2022 vacancy. 

Paulo Fonseca

At some stage, Fonseca will arrive in English football; he has been linked to several vacancies in the EPL and EFL. He is currently at French club Lille which he joined after spells at Braga in Portugal, Shakhtar Donetsk in Ukraine, and Roma in Italy. 

Thomas Frank

Danish-born Thomas Frank has been at Brentford since October 2018. He secured the Bees promotion to the English Premier League in the 2020/21 season. His use of a 3-5-2 formation means they exploit space wide on the pitch with the 2 often coming centrally deeper, with the opponents centre backs following them, this then allows space behind. Ivan Toney the main striker can often be found linking play just inside the opposition's half, before making his way back into the box, in a similar way to Harry Kane. Brentford have more than  held their own in their EPL. 

Graham Potter

Born in Solihull, home to many Aston Villa fans, Potter will surely be on the board's radar when a vacancy arises. The former Brighton and Chelsea boss looks like a possible Villa manager in waiting. 

John Terry

John Terry is well known to the board having spent time at Villa at the end of his playing career and during the Dean Smith years. 

He is currently back at his spiritual home of Stamford Bridge in a coaching consultancy role. 

Thomas Tuchel

Was devastated to be let go by Chelsea after a stuttering start to the season.

A move to the midlands may be a long shot but it would be a coup for the ambitious Aston Villa board. 

Roberto Mancini

Mancini has had a stellar career and, like many star players and managers, he now finds himself in Saudi Arabia. He is the head coach of the National side.  

Roberto Martinez

Aston Villa looks like a good fit for the likeable Roberto Martinez when Unai Emery moves on or is moved on. The Spanish-born Martinez is currently in charge of the Portuguese national side.
