Aston Villa manager Remi Garde has left the club by mutual consent after only four months in charge, Skysports reports.
The 49-year-old took over back in October, replacing Tim Sherwood, but has been unable to improve the team’s situation.
Villa are currently sitting bottom of the Premier League table, nine points away from Newcastle United in 19th and 12 away from Norwich City in 17th.
A statement issued via the club’s official website confirmed that Garde has indeed left Villa Park before thanking him for his services.
“Manager Remi Garde has today left Aston Villa Football Club by mutual consent.
“The club would like to place on record its sincere thanks to Remi for all his efforts during a difficult period and wish him well in the future.”
The squad have only registered three wins this season, drawing seven, and losing the remaining 21 matches as they edge closer to playing in the Championship.
With only seven fixtures left to play before the end of the campaign, Villa will find it very difficult to work their way out of the relegation zone.
Things aren’t looking any better for the Villans as their next three matches see them face Chelsea, Bournemouth, and then Manchester United.
