Aston Villa fans react as Remi Garde gets Montreal Impact job

MLS outfit Montreal Impact announced that they had appointed former Aston Villa boss Remi Garde as their new manager on Wednesday, and Villa fans were quick to have their say on the news.

The Frenchman has been out of work since he was sacked by the Midlands outfit in March 2016, less than five months after taking charge at Villa Park when the club was bottom of the Premier League table.

It proved to be a disastrous spell for the team and the manager with the Villans picking up just three wins in 23 matches in all competitions under the former Arsenal player, and they were relegated from the Premier League for the first time at the end of that campaign.

After failing to bounce back at the first attempt they still find themselves in the Championship, and under Steve Bruce they will be hoping they can return to the top flight this term.

Aston Villa supporters took to social media to give their thoughts on the appointment, and while many said they “wish him all the best”, another said “I’d prefer him to be our manager now”.
