Gerrard To Shake Up Villa Staff After Signing €4.7m Deal

Waffi TVNovember 12, 2021

Steven Gerrard is already making sweeping changes at the Premier League club after signing a deal worth more than £4 million (€4.7m) a year as Aston Villa’s new head coach.

Six years after departing Liverpool as a player, Gerrard (41) has returned to senior English football as the highest-paid manager in Villa’s history, agreeing a three-and-a-half-year contract.

Villa have paid around £4.5 m (€5.25m) in compensation to Rangers to appoint the former England captain, one of the greatest players of his generation and a Champions League winner. Rangers are yet to announce his successor, with their former Holland international Giovanni van Bronckhorst in the frame to move to Ibrox.

Gerrard is taking coaches Gary McAllister and Michael Beale with him from Rangers, as well as head of performance Jordan Milsom. Beale and Milsom were both with Gerrard at Liverpool. In addition, Gerrard will shake up the Villa first-team set-up, with a number of departures understood to be imminent.

The futures of lead sport scientist Jack Sharkey and performance analyst Scott Adey-Linforth are understood to be in doubt. The senior squad are currently away from the club with many of them on international duty, and the changes are expected to be in place by the time they resume training.

Specialist set-piece coach Austin MacPhee, who also holds a senior position with the Scotland national team, and first-team coach Aaron Danks are likely to stay. Both of them were brought in by the club, rather than by Gerrard’s predecessor Dean Smith.

Gerrard’s Rangers goalkeeper coach Colin Stewart will remain in Glasgow and the Villa goalkeeper coach Neil Cutler will stay in position.
