Aston Villa fans react as Dean Smith position is reportedly at risk

Dean Smith’s position at Aston Villa could reportedly be under threat going into the weekend – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter have responded to claim it may be time for him to exit.

Smith has been an extremely popular Villa manager since his appointment midway through last season, as he got them promoted from the Championship back to the Premier League and also lead them to a Carabao Cup final defeat to Manchester City this campaign.

But his team ultimately do sit 19th in the league table right now and are in danger of an immediate relegation back to the Championship, as they are two points from safety and in poor form.

According to the Telegraph, Smith is potentially fighting for his job as manager going into the weekend fixture against Chelsea in the league.

The report explains that a heavy defeat could bring the 48-year-old’s position under serious threat and he needs a response from his group.

They have lost five games in a row across all competitions and look in serious relegation trouble after losing 4-0 away to Leicester City on Monday night.

A selection of Villa supporters on social media have shown their gratitude towards Smith for the job he’s done since arriving, but have suggested that now could be a good time to get rid of him and allow a new man to try guide them to Premier League safety.
