Aston Villa fans react to news that Di Matteo is to be sacked

According to the Press Association, Roberto Di Matteo is on the verge of being sacked by the club.

The former Chelsea boss arrived in the summer, tasked with getting the club back in to the Premier League after a nightmare 15/16 season saw then slip in to the second tier of English football.

However, this season has been much like the last as Villa have struggled to come to terms with life outside of the top-flight.

Di Matteo’s side have failed to register maximum points since 3-0 victory over Rotherham and have drawn seven of their opening 11 games of the season – this has left them in 19th position and just two points above the relegation zone.
