Garde leaves Villa; Jordan Ayew to get third manager of the season

Jordan Ayew is set to play under a third coach in just one season after Aston Villa manager Remi Garde left by mutual consent, just 147 days after taking over at Premier League’s bottom club.

The 49-year-old Frenchman replaced Tim Sherwood on a three-and-a-half-year deal in November, but departs after six successive defeats.

His last game in charge was a 1-0 defeat at Swansea City on 19 March, a result that left Villa 12 points from safety with seven games remaining.

Villa won only two of their 20 league games during Garde’s tenure.

A club statement thanked the former Arsenal player for his efforts “during a difficult period” and said Eric Black would take temporary charge.

Garde’s departure is set to further cast doubts over Ayew’s future at the club.
