    FM-News

    Aston Villa have confirmed the appointments of Dean Smith as their new head coach and John Terry as assistant coach.

    The Championship club also announced Jesus Garcia Pitarch has been appointed as the club's new sporting director.

    Smith joins from Brentford, who will receive compensation from his new club, while former Villa and Chelsea defender Terry moves into coaching after announcing his retirement last week.

    CEO Christian Purslow said: "These three appointments represent the start of a new era and direction at Aston Villa and we are delighted to secure their services after an extensive search.

    "Dean has a clear and successful coaching philosophy as well as a real understanding of Aston Villa Football Club. He is also knowledgeable about the Championship.

    "The board welcomes him to the club and is looking forward to working with him and his staff.

    "John is one of the most decorated players in English football, has an affinity with the club and is ready to make the next step in his career working alongside Dean.

    "And Jesus also brings a huge amount of experience in his particular role having worked with some of the biggest clubs in Europe.

    "He will ensure the club has an integrated approach running from the academy through the U23s and into the first-team."
