Villa target Curbishley as new manager

Thursday, September 2, 2010

Managerless Aston Villa are apparently interested in bringing former West Ham boss Alan Curbishley to Villa Park as a replacement for Martin O'Niel, who left the club before the start of the new season.

Curbishley has been unemployed for two years now but apparently is interested in the Villa job. Villa are currently holding interviews, with USA boss Bob Bradley also linked in what would be his debut as manager in the Premier League. Villa are apparently after a manager with Premier League experience and Curbishley is certainly qualified for the job, having impressed at both Charlton and West Ham.

Villa will of course be looking to bring in a new chief as soon as possible. After a stuttering start to the season they will be keen to bring in an experienced manager who can settle the nerves and hopefully start up a winning streak and get their Champions League spot aspirations back on track. Personally I can see Curbishley getting the job. He has Premier League experience, and the fans will have a soft spot for the former Aston Villa player.
