It’s all over for Steven Gerrard at Aston Villa. The Liverpool legend enjoyed great success at Rangers before moving to The Midlands where he also had a decent start.


However, the beginning of the 2022/23 campaign didn’t really go to plan with his side struggling to score goals and flirting with the drop zone. The fans soon got restless and just hours after a 3-0 defeat at Fulham, Gerrard was sacked.

And Paddy’s traders have duly sprung into action to price up the contenders to bring you their next Aston Villa manager odds.

Mauricio Pochettino

Ruben Amorim

Sporting Lisbon boss Ruben Amorim is the frontrunner to replace Gerrard at Villa Park. Villa are said to be talking to the 37-year-old, who has impressed in Portugal. He guided Sporting to the Primeira Liga title in 2021 and Villa would be hoping for more success in the Midlands.

Unai Emery

Unai Emery’s going quite nicely with Villarreal in Spain at the moment and, after a pretty tough spell in England with Arsenal, could he be tempted to head back to the Premier League?

Brendan Rodgers

Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers is under pressure to turn things around at the King Power Stadium after a dismal start to the season. Could he be tempted into a switch if Villa came calling?

Brendan Rodgers

Sean Dyche

Big Sean Dyce is doing the rounds on a lot of Paddy’s next manager markets at the moment and he’s still a free agent after getting the boot from his last role at Burnley. More known for keeping clubs in the top flight than his flowing football, his appointment would surely indicate that the Villa hierarchy think it’s going to be a long, hard season.

Thomas Frank

Brentford boss Thomas Frank features prominently on the list at this early stage and he’s done a great job getting the Bees into the Premier League for the first time. It might look like a sideways step but with Villa’s fanbase and budget he could be tempted.


Mauricio Pochettino

Former Southampton, Spurs and Paris St-Germain boss Mauricio Pochettino would surely be a popular choice among the Villa faithful. He seems to love a project and likes to play exciting, modern football on the front foot. Would he be prepared to go from PSG to Villa though?

Thomas Tuchel

Ex Chelsea, Borussia Dortmund and Paris St-Germain gaffer Thomas Tuchel would surely be a great appointment for Villa. He got the boot after winning the Champions League with Chelsea and could be tempted to head back to England for revenge over his old employers.
