Aston Villa

3 clear hurdles Dean Smith has to overcome at Aston Villa in the next few weeks



The big news in the world of football this morning is Dean Smith’s appointment as manager of Aston Villa

It is a move which has delighted some of the purists, a Villa fan being given the chance to manage the club he loves as well as an English manager being handed a chance on a big stage.

There’s little doubt Aston Villa are a top-flight club punching well below their weight. They shouldn’t be in the Championship based on their history and stature, but the reality is right now they’re not even amongst the favourites for promotion.

Mismanagement under Bruce and of the course the summer of discontent have left them some way behind their rivals, although the talented squad should surely be able to arrest the slide under the right guidance.

What will Dean Smith need to address to be a success? Here’s three hurdles he’ll have to overcome in the next few weeks.
