Amavi said: “I have been impressed by Rémi Garde. The team has definitely improved and we look a lot stronger - although the defeat against Liverpool was obviously a setback after a good run of results. They know - as I do - that it's a very tough challenge for the club to stay in the Premier League but they won't give up this fight to stay in the division.”
Garde has been impressing Amavi, who has been forced to sit out of the game for months due to injury.
The left-back has seen Villa slightly improve under the head coach, who took charge of the club following the sacking of Tim Sherwood.
Amavi took part in Garde’s first game as head coach - the 0-0 draw with Manchester City - before getting injured on international duty with the French Under-20s.
Results have slightly picked up in the time that Amavi has been out of the team, although they have only picked up two wins in that time.
There are more draws and fewer losses than there were under Sherwood, and the players seem to be slightly more up for the fight.
However, this all went out of the window last weekend, having been thrashed 6-0 by Liverpool.
It was a gutless performance, and one that undid all the good work Garde has done at Villa Park, although Amavi has pledged that his teammates will not give up on the fight to stay in the Premier League.
