Ian Wright explains the one positive Aston Villa can take this season

Aston Villa

The cub are set to be relegated to the Championship following a dismal campaign.

Aston Villa’s new look board is the only positive you can take from their current situation, Ian Wright has told BBC Radio 5 Live 606.

The Villans are currently bottom of the Premier League and set to be relegated to the Championship, potentially this weekend.

It has been a disastrous campaign, which has saw them sack two managers, as well as make a raft of changes at boardroom level as well.

Recent months have seen Adrian Bevington, Andy Bernstein and Brian Little all join as the club sought to bring people with football knowledge to run things on and off the pitch.

And Wright says that he is certain those appointments are the right decision, adding they are the only positive that can be taken from their current plight.

“You’ve got a couple of people in there, Bernstein, Bevington and Brian Little that are quite experienced,” he told BBC Radio 5 Live 606.

“You have to hope that that is the start of going in the right direction. Of course it’s very disappointing right now, but I believe with those appointments that is a step in the right direction.

“As disappointing as it is right now, that is the only positive you can take from it. Watching the team there is still nowhere near a lack of fight or desire, and that’s not good to see.”

The first key decision Villa’s new board will have to make is appointing Remi Garde’s successor at the club.

The club can ill afford to make another poor appointment as they have done for several years, especially with a hard Championship campaign looming.

Indeed, the current sentiment seems to be that a manager with experience in the division should be approached, and that could be a sensible choice from the club this summer.
