Ruud Gullit Wants To Be The Next Villa Manager
Posted by Featured Articles | Published on March 31, 2016
Ruud Gullit has thrown his hat into the ring to become Aston Villa’s manager.
Gullit, 53, who managed both Chelsea and Newcastle has been out of management for five years and hasn’t managed in the Premier League since 1999.
But after Villa parted company with Remi Garde by mutual consent, Gullit admitted he would consider a return to management.
‘If they come to me I will really, really consider it,’ Gullit told beIN Sports.
‘I will think about it if I have the people around me to do the job.
‘I feel ready. There were some things that I had to do also in my life.’
Despite enjoying life as a pundit for beIN, Gullit feels its time to return to the dugout.
‘I’m happy with what I am doing here at beIN Sports. I’ve worked here a long time, and I’m happy with what I’m doing.
‘People look after me and you think to yourself, “Why would you give that up?”
‘Everyday is a stress, if you want that you can get it. But of course if they came to me then I would consider it.’
Villa are heading to the Championship after one of the club’s worst seasons in its 141 year history but due to his lack of top level management in recent years, it’s unlikely that Gullit will appear on Villa’s shortlist.
