English Premier League (EPL) side, Aston Villa communications director Tommy Jordan has dismissed reports that the club have sacked coach Steven Gerrard.
Newsbreak.ng reports that After Football Insider posted on Twitter that the ex-Liverpool star had been fired, Jordan wrote: “How many times can you publish complete lies before people unfollow the account? Not sure why anyone actually follows this account. If you do, you shouldn’t.”
Meanwhile, Aston Villa will attempt to lure Mauricio Pochettino to Villa Park if the club decide to part ways with Gerrard in the coming weeks, the Telegraph reports.
Villa are 16th in the EPL, one point above the relegation zone, after picking up just two wins in their opening 10 league games.
They face Fulham away on Thursday and Brentford at home on Sunday, two matches which could decide Gerrard’s fate, and if the former Rangers boss is dismissed then Villa will have an ambitious top target in Pochettino, the ex-Tottenham manager who left Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) at the end of last season.
