David Ginola's response when asked whether he's interested in the manager's job at Aston Villa

Villa Park

Aston Villa are on the hunt for a new manager following the dismissal of Remi Garde.

David Ginola has remained coy over whether he would be interested in taking the Aston Villa managerial job, when asked on TalkSPORT’s Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast Show which was broadcast on 5th April.

Villa are on the hunt for a new manager following the dismissal of Remi Garde last week, and a number of names have been touted to take over the job.

Ginola is someone who knows Villa well, having represented them during his playing days, and when asked whether he would be interested in taking over at Villa Park he avoiding the question.

“I think it’s a great club,” he said, when asked whether he would like the manager’s job at Villa.

“Obviously to come back to something like Villa back in the 80’s is going to be a massive task for the new manager.”

There have been no suggestions that Ginola could become the next Villa boss, and it would be a major task for the Frenchman to guide them back into the Premier League.

Ginola has no previous managerial experience, and it seems unlikely that Villa will turn to a rookie boss given their current situation.

Villa are destined to be playing Championship football next season, and they have a great deal of work to be done if they are to bounce straight back from relegation.

At the moment the bookies’ favourites to land the job at Villa Park are Steve Bruce, Sean Dyche and Nigel Pearson.
