Aston Villa boss Remi Garde could leave the club in the summer after voicing his concerns over their failed January window, Express reports.
His side are currently struggling to avoid relegation from the Premier League as they sit bottom of the table, six points away from Sunderland in 19th.
Garde was considering a number of transfer reinforcements during the summer, but was unable to complete the signing of any of his targets.
He has now come out to admit the current problems at the club as pressure begins to mount heading into the second half of the campaign.
“Maybe it was not as clear when I signed, but it’s something that I don’t want to discuss too much,” he said.
“I understand that you cannot carry on doing the same things when you have not been as successful as you have wanted.
“The situation of a team at the bottom of the table was not easy for players but that was not the only reason.
“It was also a financial problem. As a new manager I would have expected new faces to support my changes.”
Despite the Frenchman earlier revealing that he was ready to remain with Villa even if they got relegated, he may be forced to leave due to the lack of support from the board.
The club are believed to have limited his spending capabilities as they begin preparing for life should they be unable to avoid relegation from the English top flight.
