Dean Smith’s job as Aston Villa manager is reportedly under threat.

Aston Villa fans on Twitter have reacted to the rumour about Dean Smith’s future being at stake.

According to The Daily Mail, Aston Villa’s hierarchy could axe Smith amid a worsening run of results.

The Villans, who have a game in hand, were smashed 4-0 by Leicester City on Monday night, leaving them 19th in the Premier League.

The West Midlands club spent around £140 million since sealing their Premier League return from the Championship last May.

And relegation could have far worse implications beyond losing their top-flight status.

But Aston Villa fans on social media don’t believe that Smith – who led the team to a League Cup final, losing 2-1 to Manchester City – is in danger yet.










Smith is hardly blameless for Aston Villa’s struggles this season, but there are other variables in the equation.

The Villans have a Director of Football who has been identifying the players and spending this £140 million on them.

Jesus Garcia Pitarch is the man overseeing comings and goings in the West Midlands and if Aston Villa’s players aren’t good enough to stay in the Premier League, it makes you wonder who is really to blame.
