Stan Collymore shares his opinion on Remi Garde

Rémi Garde

Stan Collymore suggests that Remi Garde was lied to by the Aston Villa board.

Stan Collymore has suggested on that he feels for Aston Villa manager Remi Garde.

The former Villa striker has claimed that Garde was lied to by the Premier League club’s chiefs.

“A manager who looks as though he’s been sold a lie when he signed his contract and a team, if I can use that term, that are an embarrassment to their profession, club and league in which they currently reside,” Collymore wrote on

Garde was appointed the Villa manager in November following the dismissal of Tim Sherwood.

The Frenchman arrived in the Premier League with a good reputation, but he has not been able to do much at Villa Park so far.

The Villans, who failed to make a single signing in the January transfer window, are at the foot of the Premier League table at the moment with just 16 points from 26 matches.

Villa look doomed for relegation to the Championship at the end of the season, and the big question is whether they would be able to bounce back to the Premier League soon.

Garde is a good manager, but he cannot work wonders with the current group of players that he has got.
