Remi Garde quits Aston Villa

Last night during play amongst a host of international friendlies, Premier League side Aston Villa announced the departure of French manager Remi Garde by mutual consent.

Former Lyon manager Garde had been on the edge of an abyss since the January transfer window, when he threatened to walk out after being given no funds in order to sign players in order to aid the club in their relegation battle.

At the time, he was convinced by the Aston Villa board to stay, but following a host of changes at the senior management level at the club that included the departure of Tom Fox, who was responsible for bringing Garde in, the former Arsenal player will now no longer be on the touchline for the Midlands club.

Garde managed just two Premier League wins in 20 matches and leaves England undoubtedly with a severe sense of disappointment.
