Steven Gerrard to take up new role following Aston Villa sacking

Aston Villa fans can watch Steven Gerrard during the international break, as the former manager is set for a new role.

The Liverpool legend was sacked by the Villa hierarchy in October 2022, ending his 11 months in charge of the club. A dismal 3-0 defeat at Fulham, to the club’s owners, left the team 17th in the table and prompted Nassef Sawiris to go after Unai Emery, who has since turned Villa’s fortunes around.

Gerrard arrived at Villa Park after an unbeaten title-winning season with Rangers in 2021. His previous promise as manager has seen the 42-year-old promoted with several vacancies in recent months, including Poland national team and Shock links with the work of PSG.

However, before returning to the dugout, Gerrard is ready to receive a new job as a pundit. He daily mail It has been reported that Villa’s former boss will be part of the Channel 4 broadcasting team for the upcoming qualifiers for the Three Lions for Euro 2024 against Italy and Ukraine.

The report indicates that Gerrard, who made 114 appearances for England in his playing days, will join Jill Scott and former Villa midfielder Joe Cole. Gareth Southgate’s side will face Italy in Naples on Thursday (7:45pm kickoff) before hosting Ukraine at Wembley on Sunday (5pm kickoff).

Unfortunately, there is no Villa contingent in the latest Three Lions squad for Gerrard to get past the rule, given Southgate’s decision not to include Tyrone Mings and Ollie Watkins on the roster. Watkins may perhaps be particularly aggrieved after scoring six in his last seven, before the team’s announcement, as he looks to add to his tally of seven England games so far.
