Report updates Remi Garde's situation; could he manage Aston Villa against Chelsea?

RĂ©mi Garde

Remi Garde remains Aston Villa manager - and could even take charge against Chelsea on Saturday.

According to the Daily Mail, Aston Villa boss Remi Garde's future still hasn't been resolved - and he could even take charge against Chelsea this coming weekend.

Villa currently sit bottom of the Premier League table and a huge 12 points adrift of safety, with just seven games left to play in a miserable campaign.

Having won just three league games all season, Villa certainly deserve to go down, and their mid-season managerial change did little to help their perilous situation at the foot of the table.

Tim Sherwood lost his job in October, with Frenchman Remi Garde - a former Arsenal player - arriving at Villa Park in November, with the hope that he could turn things around and keep Villa in the Premier League.

However, Garde has struggled to make any sort of positive impact at Villa, and many believe that he will leave the club imminently as Villa look to completely rebuild this summer.

Bizarrely though, Garde remains in the job, and there is a deafening silence coming out of Villa Park right now. Fans are confused, and will be even more perplexed after the Daily Mail reported that Garde could in fact take charge of Villa's home game against Chelsea on Saturday afternoon.

It's claimed that Villa are delaying their move to sack Garde because they want to minimise the amount of compensation paid out to the Frenchman, but given that Garde feels let down by the Villa board having failed to make any January signings, a divorce between club and manager seems to be a case of when, not if, here.

Do you think Villa should sack Garde now?
