Ex-Aston Villa Favourite Says Tim Sherwood Not The Man To Replace Paul Lambert

The Midlands side have been looking for a new boss after former manager Paul Lambert was sacked, with the side’s 2-0 loss to Hull City in mid-week the final straw.

It had been thought that Klinsmann, along with ex-Spurs manager Tim Sherwood, was one of the leading candidates for the role. This appears to have been false information however, as the retired footballer seems happy where he is.

According to reports, the German is far more interested in continuing his work developing the US national side for the 2018 World Cup in Russia, and has no interest in a seemingly fruitless role at Villa Park. He is believed to have serious concerns about taking on a side in the relegation zone, especially with games starting to run out.

First-team coach Scott Marshall and goalkeeping coach Andy Marshall are currently in temporary charge at Villa, with owner Randy Lerner continuing his hunt for the right man to replace Paul Lambert.
