ASTON Villa have confirmed they are not expecting their new manager to move to Birmingham and are happy to go to him.
The club, who are in the relegation zone, have admitted that it is unreasonable for any boss to be expected to take on the twin miseries of the club and living in the West Midlands.
Chairman Randy Lerner said: “Don’t let the commuting thing put you off. If you’re willing to manage us, we’ll do the rest of the work.
“London? No problem. Madrid? Suits us. Florida? Australia? Leicester? Seriously, the way things are, we’d consider relocating to Leicester.
“In fact, we don’t have to be a football club. Maybe we could be a multiplex cinema. Or a go-kart track. Or a carpet warehouse. Up to you.
“We’re not interviewing for the position. We don’t want anyone to have the chance to think twice.”
So far, the only activity around the vacancy was Tim Sherwood calling the police after spotting the 42,000-capacity Villa Park lurking in the bushes at the bottom of his drive.
