Aston Villa announce exciting management trio: Smith, Terry and Pitarch

Aston Villa have announced the appointment of Dean Smith as new manager.

Smith's arrival from Brentford is one of three major appointments made by the Championship giants:

"Aston Villa Football Club is delighted to announce the appointments of Dean Smith as our new Head Coach, John Terry as Assistant Coach and Jesus Garcia Pitarch as Sporting Director.

"Smith, a lifelong Villa fan, is known for his exciting and attractive brand of football which he implemented in his previous posts at both Brentford and Walsall.

"Terry spent the final year of his illustrious playing career at Villa Park as he captained the club to the play-off final last season and brings a wealth of experience with him to his new role from his time as skipper of both Chelsea and England.

"And Pitarch has occupied Director of Football roles at both Valencia and Atletico Madrid in his native Spain.

"During his time at Valencia, the club won the La Liga title and UEFA Cup and Atletico lifted the Europa League and the European Super Cup during his tenure."
