Gary Neville has some harsh words for Aston Villa after Tim Sherwood sacking

Aston Villa parted company with Tim Sherwood yesterday, with the side currently bottom of the Premier League table.

Gary Neville has told Sky Sports that Aston Villa have far more problems than just the manager, after the club decided to part ways with Tim Sherwood yesterday.

Sherwood left Villa with the club propping up the Premier League, but Neville doesn't feel that the 46-year-old was entirely to blame for the side's struggles.

The former Manchester United defender claims claims that Villa need a complete overhaul, as at the moment they are simply set to struggle every season. 

"These clubs like Sunderland, Newcastle and Villa are in turmoil every season so we shouldn't be surprised and nor should Tim Sherwood," Neville said.

"It's almost an inevitability. I don't know where Aston Villa go from here. They'll appoint another manager who might keep them up or might not but the club needs an overhaul.

"It's such a big club, my feeling of Aston Villa is not what I see in its current plight."

The current bookies' favourite to land the vacant job at Villa Park is Remy Garde, but whoever takes charge will have a huge task on their hands to guide the side away from trouble.

The Claret and Blues have been in awful form, and they still have not won since the very first day of the season, when they picked up a victory against Bournemouth.

Villa's summer signings have largely struggled with the transition to English football, while their more experienced players have been far short of their best. 

Their dire form has left them four points away from safety, and with matches against Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City and Everton coming up, their new manager is set to be welcomed with a baptism of fire.
