Remi Garde admits he is finding things difficult at Aston Villa

Aston Villa are currently eight points away from safety in the Premier League table.

Remi Garde has admitted to the Birmingham Mail that even he is finding it hard to pick himself up from continuous set backs as Aston Villa boss.

The Claret and Blues have endured a disastrous campaign so far, and they look destined to be relegated.

Villa are currently eight points adrift of safety and they have won just three times throughout the whole campaign.

The Midlands side’s most recent defeat came against Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium on Saturday, and Garde admits that he is finding it tough to stay motivated.

“It’s difficult," he said, when asked whether it was hard to keep picking himself up after so many disappointments.

“If I was saying no it’s not hard, nobody would understand it or believe me.

“I tell the truth. It’s difficult.

“No way is the intention to leave the job until I’m told to do so of course.

“I know it’s a difficult situation but in football, in life you have situations that you have to cope with but I’m strong enough to do so.”

Villa went into their match against Stoke on the back of a 6-0 loss against Liverpool, which really highlighted the problems that they have.

The Villans actually put in a much improved performance at the Britannia Stadium, but they still came up short in the contest.

It is hard to see where Villa’s next points are coming from, with the confidence of the group visibly poor.

Garde’s men’s next match comes against Everton on Tuesday evening at Villa Park.
