Recently out of a job after being removed as manager of Liverpool Brendan Rodgers could be looking to get back to work quickly. Brendan Rodgers began his career as a manager with his first job being Watford FC in the championship, after a poor start which saw them in the relegation zone, he managed to improve their form and guided them to finish in 13th place. He left Watford for Reading who he had been a player for. After a good initial start, his form worsened and he left Reading after just 6 months by mutual consent.
Brendan Rodgers joined Swansea in 2010 and secured their place in the 2011 playoffs resulting in promotion to the premiership. Swansea had been strongly tipped for relegation but some excellent results against the premiership elites saw them secure safety and establish themselves as a premier league side. He moved from Swansea to Liverpool he had a good start at Liverpool and narrowly missed out on winning the premier league title. The loss of Liverpools star player, Luis Suarez, Raymond Sterling, Steven Gerard and injuries to striker Sturridge resulted in a dip of form as Liverpool struggled to maintain the competitiveness with the other top premiership teams. A poor start this season, resulted in Brendan Rodgers getting the sack from Liverpool, but many believe his talents are still highly sought after and could help Aston Villa going forward.

A manager who is used to scrapping at the bottom of the table, Nigel Pearson miraculously saved Leicester from the drop last season, but was sacked during the summer. Currently looking for work, but may be to much for Randy Lerner to control!

Nigel Pearson went on to manage Leicester City, the team that had just been relegated to League One , after an excellent start Nigel Pearson became manager of the month, the season continued to be at the sharp end of the table. Although two good seasons on the pitch for Leicester tensions were strained with the board which resulted in Nigel Pearson leaving for Hull City. After relegation from the premier league, Pearson was charged to help the club regain their premiership status, Hull competed for a play off position, but Nigel Pearson ended up leaving the club to return to former club Leicester for a second term as manager, as new owners took over the club. Nigel Pearson helped Leicester regain their premier league status but struggled to find form when their premiership campaign began, and they found themselves bottom of the league at xmas, but a change in form saw them climb the table to safety, one of only 3 clubs to recover from bottom of the league at xmas. Pearson again found himself leave Leicester in the summer due to conflict with the board. He is currently out of work and could be up for a relegation battle as new manager of Aston Villa.
Manager of relegated Burnley, they pushed Aston Villa hard for survival, considering the lack of spending of the club Burnley remained competitive in the premiership, still manager of Burnley could Aston Villa look to Sean Dyche for their fight for survival.
Dyche was a coach at Watford, before becoming their manager in 2011 he recorded an 1th place finish, but when new owners took over the club he found himself being replace by Zola as manager. He did not remain out of work for long and was appointed manager of Burnley, who he managed to get promotion to the premeirship, unfortunatly fund were tight and after a hard fought campaign was relegated back to the championship, where he continues as Burnley manager.
The former Danish international Michael Laudrup, he began his managerial carrer as assistent manager to the Danish national team, before becoming manager of Bronby, guiding them to victory in the Danish cup. After finishing runner up to Coppenhagen in the league, he did one better the following year claiming the Danish Superliga title. Laudrup was linked to a number of top European clubs including that of former club Real Madrid, he eventuly left for la liga club Getafe.
As manager of Getafe he brought an attractive style of play to Getafe, together they reached the final of the Copa del Rey and the quarter finals of the UEFA cup. He resigned from Getafe and was again linked with numerous clubs across Europe, he was later announced as manager of Spartak Moscow. He struggled to find form as manager of Spartak Moscow and was relieved of his duties after only 7 months in charge. After a short period of time out of work, he took the job as manager of Mallorca.
After helping Mallorca avoid relegation he left the club. In 2012 he replaced Brendan Rodgers as manager of Swansea and became the first Danish manager to manage a premiership side. As manager of swansea, he led them to the first major cup final, winning the league cup beating Bradford 5-0 at wembley. The following year a drop in form left Swansea narrowly clear of relegation and was sacked by the club.
Currently manager of the American national team, Jurgen Klinsmannn was linked with the club on the departure of Paul Lambert, with Randy Lerner thought to be an admirer of the former German international. He has recently seen a dip in form with team USA but could still wish to remain with team for the 2018 world cup.
After a highly succesful playing career Jurgen Klinsmann went into management, and was appointed head coach of the German national team. With an agressive rebuilding campaign he brought many new players into the German squad, he had many critics who were silenced in the 2006 world cup were they were knocked out in the semi finals and finished in third place. He declined to renew his contract and took a break from management. In 2008 he took over German side Bayern Munich under his management Bayern Munich reached the final of the European Champions league, he left Bayern Munich that year after a difference of opinion with the board.
Klinsmannn again had a break from management untill 2011, when he was named 35th manager of the USA, who he is still managing.
Bob Bradley is a former manager of Team USA and is currently manager of Staebaek in Norway. Bob Bradley wants to manage a team in the premier league and has been linked with Sunderland. But has he got the experence to manage Aston Villa that is the question.
Could Lerner go back to rob a manager from Birmingham City, would obviously think twice about it after the desaster of Alex McLeish but can never predict what this American may think of doing. Rowett`s Birmingham are in good form at the moment, but could a move from the bigger midlands club tempt him away, it is rumoured that Gary Rowett is actually an Aston Villa fan.
