Stuart Pearce says Aston Villa should be moving Heaven and Earth to appoint this manager

Aston Villa are currently on the search for a new manager, following Remi Garde's dismissal last month.

Stuart Pearce has told Sky Sports News, which was broadcast on 18th April, that Aston Villa should be ‘moving Heaven and Earth’ to ensure that Sean Dyche is their next manager.

Villa are currently on the hunt for a new boss, following the departure of Remi Garde last month.

Eric Black is in temporary charge, but Villa are expected to appoint a new boss at the end of the season.

And Pearce feels that current Burnley manager Dyche would be the ideal man to take over at Villa Park.

“If it was down to me and I was on the board of directors at Villa I would move heaven and Earth to go and get Sean Dyche,” the former Nottingham Forest boss said.

“Put him in charge and say ‘go and rebuild our football club, we need someone who the fans can look at and believe’.”

At the moment, the likes of David Moyes and Nigel Pearson are regarded as the bookies’ favourites to land the job with the Claret and Blues.

Dyche has been touted as a potential candidate, but persuading him to take the job could be difficult.

Dyche is currently in a secure role as Burnley manager, and the Clarets appear to be one of the favourites to be promoted from the Championship this season.

Villa, meanwhile, are expected to have to make major changes if they are to bounce back from relegation next season.
