Codedwap understands that Aston Villa have sacked manager Tim Sherwood after an horrendous start to the new campaign.
The defeat against Swansea on Saturday condemned Aston Villa to their sixth consecutive Premier League defeat.
A statement on the club website read:
“The board has monitored the performances closely all season and believes the results on the pitch were simply not good enough and that a change is imperative.
“However, the club would like to place on record its sincere thanks to Tim for all his efforts during a difficult period last season and for the many positive contributions he has made to the entire football set-up during his time with the club.
“We wish him well in the future. A search for a new manager has commenced and the squad will be managed in the interim by Kevin MacDonald.”
