Tim Sherwood says he would consider a second spell in charge of Aston Villa after Roberto Di Matteo was sacked with the club sitting 19th in the Championship table.
The former Spurs coach worked under former chairman Randy Lerner. But while he doesn’t know new owner Dr Tony Xia, Sherwood would be keen to discuss the role with the new chairman.
Sherwood said: “I don’t know these owners. I was there under a different regime.
“The guy I was with (Randy Lerner) wanted out so it was a really difficult situation for me.
When you go into a club where someone where someone wants to really pick it up and take it forward then it’s a great opportunity for any young manager.
“I’d be no different to anyone else (in being interested).”
