Villa got relegated from the Premier League at the end of the 2015-16 campaign and will play in the Championship next season.

The Villans are one of the biggest clubs of England and have a loyal fanbase, but they are going to find it tough to finish in the top six in the Championship next season.

Di Matteo is a good manager who won the Champions League with Chelsea in 2012, but he would not find it easy in the Championship.

The former West Bromwich Albion boss would have to make a number of changes to the squad and sign players who can cope with the rigours of the Championship.
