Steven Gerrard Sacked After Heavy Defeat At Fulham

JUST IN: Steven Gerrard Sacked After Heavy Defeat At Fulham

Aston Villa have sacked manager Steven Gerrard following Thursday’s 3-0 Premier League defeat at Fulham.

Gerrard and his players were booed off at full-time by Villa’s furious fans after the loss at Fulham extended their winless run to four matches.

Aston Villa Football Club can confirm that head coach Steven Gerrard has left the club with immediate effect,” a statement said.

We would like to thank Steven for his hard work and commitment and wish him well for the future.”


Villa have won just twice in the league this season and only sit above the relegation zone on goals scored.


Gerrard succeeded Dean Smith as Villa manager in November 2021 after leaving his role at Rangers.

But the former England and Liverpool midfielder, 42, led Villa to only 13 wins from 40 games during his 11 months in charge.

The former Liverpool and England star was expected to push Villa higher up the table this season, but instead he leaves with the club firmly embroiled in a relegation battle.

Gerrard won the Scottish title with Rangers in 2021, ending Celtic’s long period of dominance.

But he has been unable to build on that impressive work since moving to Villa Park, failing to win over the club’s supporters with some poor performances.
