The Villa faithful are pleased to hear the team is set to be whipped into shape.
After a week of speculation about the potential arrival of the former Arsenal midfielder he was finally appointed at the club yesterday and watched Villa succumb to a 3-1 defeat against Tottenham Hotspur.
The delay in his appointment came with Lyon's refusal to let Garde bring in two of his former coaches and the Frenchman wanted to make sure he found an adequate replacement.
That he did and he now looks set to shake up the fitness side of things at the club with Metz confirming last night that Duverne was on his way to Villa.
Duverne has of course worked with Villa before. He was appointed by Villa's last French boss, the largely unpopular Gerard Houllier, back in 2010.
In March 2011 it was reported by the Daily Mail that Duverne was at the centre of infighting at the club after a bust-up with experienced centre-back pair Richard Dunne and James Collins. He was also the French coach at the centre of the 2010 mutiny in the national team during the FIFA World Cup in South Africa.
But it looks like his appointment has gone down well with Villa fans.
They seem to feel the side needs some serious work on their fitness woes ahead of a relegation battle and that Duverne can do the trick.
However, there certainly seemed to be some fears regarding the future of Gabriel Agonlahor after the news was revealed.
Here is a collection of the best tweets from Aston Villa fans...
Robert Duverne rejoining #avfc then, excellent. The players fitness this year is tragic, most can't play more than 65 mins.— Andy (@Tebroc1991) November 3, 2015
Gabby wont be happy with return of Duverne. #AVFC— AVFC Transfer Tweet (@AVFCTransTweet) November 3, 2015
Duverne is going to be one of the best things that has ever happened to us #avfc— AstonVanilla (@AstonVanilla_) November 3, 2015
Robert Duverne on his way back to Villa. Divisive character but one of the best coaches around. Team hasn't been as fit since he left. #AVFC— Jon Startin (@Jon_Startin) November 3, 2015
Would love to have seen some of the players faces when they found out Duverne was back #avfc— Verbal Kint (@latzstar) November 3, 2015
Think this could be curtains for Gabby, had run-ins with Duverne on his training regime at the time of the Dunne/Collins fiasco #avfc— The Villa Times (@AVFCTimes) November 3, 2015
Gabby's favourite fitness coach is on his way, welcome back Duverne! Time to bust some balls! #avfc— Robért Jones (@UpTheAstonVilla) November 3, 2015
