Nigel Pearson now a best price 8/15 to replace Remi Garde as permanent manager of Aston Villa
Nigel Pearson has spent a full season out of football management, although the man that paved the way for Leicester City’s Premier League title success appears to be ready to return.
The bookies anticipate that the man who called a journalist an ostrich during the 2014/15 season is about to become the next manager of Aston Villa FC despite the fact that the club appears to be in a right state at the moment.
It was an awful Premier League campaign which saw Tim Sherwood and Remi Garde both struggle to get the right results and both managers were sent packing by Randy Lerner. The American needs to get the next managerial appointment right and Pearson ticks a lot of boxes.
Pearson has guided Leicester into the Premier League before and also kept them in the top flight last season before the Thai owners dispensed with him and brought in Claudio Ranieri.
It seems as though Aston Villa want a straight-talking manager who can bang heads together and understands the rigours of managing in the Championship.
