Aston Villa new head coach Steven Gerrard has made it known that he wants to build Aston Villa according to his taste. The former Liverpool player also said it is wrong to say he is using the club as a stepping stone to get to Liverpool managerial role.
Steven Gerrard Talks on how to Change Villa
Aston Villa is currently two points above the relegation zone after picking up 10 points from 11 games and going into Gerrard’s first game in charge will be against Brighton on Saturday on the back of five consecutive league defeats. According to Gerrard, he said: “It has been a whirlwind,” Gerrard said. “It has been great to get on the grass with the players. We have had quite a few internationals away. I am looking forward to meeting the rest of them.”
Steven Gerrard also said: “We are going to play slightly different to what’s been before. I want to put my own stamp on things, my own identity and our philosophy. That will take some time, but you will see some changes at the weekend.” “It is a new start. A fresh start. I have told the players to impress me the best way they can on and off the pitch.”
Steven Gerrard said the following statistics don’t lie. He believes he can work on Aston Villa, who is the eighth top-scoring side in the English Premier League this season. He thinks the fact that his side scoring side makes the players very talented, and so far, the creation of chances has been very good.
He said the problem of the team is that they concede too many goals, so it is quite clear that the team need to tighten up, be more organised and work harder to play against any team in the league. Finding an action to the problem will serve their whole problem move them up the league.
