Aston Villa coach Scott Marshall leaves the club

Aston Villa coach Scott Marshall has left the club following the arrival of Tim Sherwood as manager, reports Sky Sports.

Marshall, along with goalkeeping coach Andy Marshall, took caretaker charge of the club for one game after former manager Paul Lambert was sacked, and now he finds himself out of the door following Sherwood’s appointment. Aston Villa won his only game in charge 2-1 in the FA Cup fifth round against Leicester City.

It is expected that the ex Spurs boss will bring in his own backroom staff in the coming week, which could well see more faces depart the club. With Sherwood having signed a three year deal, he needs a side in his image from the top down. Scott Marshall was a first-team exit prior to his exit, and was initially brought in by Lambert, with the two having worked together at Norwich City.

Swindon Town’s assistant manager Luke Williams has been linked with a move to Aston Villa to fill the vacant No.2 role at the club, but Sherwood revealed the difficulty to drag him away from the Robins.
