  • 16 August 2019
    导出博客文章Remi Garde left Aston Villa by mutual consent on Tuesday after just 147 days in
    charge, but who will be the man to succeed him? That decision comes down to the
    Aston Villa board, which in the last three months has experienced a major
    re-shuffle that has led to the departures of chief executive Tom Fox and
    sporting director Hendrik Almstadt.So with some new faces entering the doors of
    Aston Villas dedicated football boardroom, who will be responsible for
    appointing Remi Gardes successor? We take a look at five of the key figures.
    Steve Hollis Aston Villa chairman Steve Hollis has expressed his concerns on how
    the club spent their transfer funds in the summer A Manchester City fan with an
    accountancy background, Hollis has held numerous high-profile roles for KPMG in
    the Middle East, Far East, USA and Europe before taking on the role of Aston
    Villa chairman in January this year.He is also the current vice-chairman of the
    Greater Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership.Hollis told Sky
    Sports News HQ that he has been frustrated at the clubs transfer spending over
    the last few years and that things need to be fixed before big money is spent
    again.Whoever does take charge of Villa should not expect to receive too much to
    play with next season.Mervyn King Mervyn King has joined Aston Villa as a
    director Aston Villa announced the appointment of Lord King of Lothbury, the
    former Bank of England Governor, to its board of directors on February 4.The
    67-year-old is known as a life-long Villa supporter and says he has been
    attending matches for over 55 years.Villa chairman Hollis said of his
    appointment: Mervyn successfully steered the Bank of England through the most
    turbulent economic headwinds in living memory.His appointment to the board is a
    huge boost as we plan our path back to more successful times. Who will be next
    Villa boss? Leading contenders to replace Remi Garde, according to Sky Bets
    odds. David BernsteinBernstein became chairman of the FA in 2011, alongside the
    same role he filled for Wembley Stadium Limited since 2008.Before that,
    Bernstein joined Manchester City in 1994 as a board member then became chairman
    in 1998. He was widely respected by Manchester City supporters for bringing
    stability to the club, leaving in 2010.The Aston Villa role is his first with
    one club since. He told Sky Sports News HQ last week the club must be cautious
    of thinking too short-term if they are relegated.If we are thinking short-term
    or long-term, then it has to be a little bit of both, he said. We have to mix
    sensible short-term thinking and long-term planning. We cant be too
    short-termist, but on the other hand we cant be thinking five years ahead
    because a lot will happen in the next year or two.Adrian Bevington Adrian
    Bevington used to be the director of communications for the FA Bevington is well
    known in the world of football mainly for his time working with the England team
    in his old role as Club England managing director.He spent 17 years at the FA,
    holding a media role before taking on the position of head of media then
    director of communications.Since leaving his role in 2015, Bevington has helped
    the Welsh FA plan their operations for Euro 2016 and also assisted Watford with
    a communications plan ahead of their return to the Premier League.He was
    appointed to the Aston Villa board on March 29 and will work closely once again
    with David Bernstein.Brian Little Brian Little is the last Aston Villa manager
    to win a major trophy Little is a former Aston Villa player and manager who was
    appointed as an advisor to the board on March 11.The former Villa striker spent
    his entire playing career at the club from 1970 to 1980, scoring 60 goals in 247
    appearances.Little was Villa manager and led them to the League Cup in 1996, the
    clubs last piece of major silverware. Earlier this year, he was appointed Jersey
    manager until the end of the season.He won 68 of his 164 games in charge of the
    Birmingham club between 1994 and 1998, and also took charge of West Brom, Stoke
    and Leicester during his managerial career.Little is highly respected among
    Villa fans, and his knowledge of football management should mean his input is
    vital when the club select their new manager. Also See: Who will be next Villa
