Aston Villa, who lost against Swansea on Saturday, have decided to part ways with their manager, Tim Sherwood, who had joined the club replacing Paul Lambert in February .

The English manager could not even last for a year with the EPL club, despite helping his team survive relegation last season. Villa are currently struggling in the last position of the domestic competition. Kevin MacDonald will take charge during the interim period.

The club has been poor this season with one victory in 10 games, which prompted the persons concerned with the club to axe Sherwood.

The club came up with a statement on Aston Villa's official website, which stated that change was the need of the hour after some poor results during the season.

"Aston Villa Football Club has parted company with manager Tim Sherwood today. The board has monitored the performances closely all season and believes the results on the pitch were simply not good enough and that a change is imperative," the statement read.

"However, the club would like to place on record its sincere thanks to Tim for all his efforts during a difficult period last season and for the many positive contributions he has made to the entire football setup during his time with the club. We wish him well in the future."

"Assistant manager Ray Wilkins, first-team coach Mark Robson and performance analyst Seamus Brady have also left with immediate effect and do so with our best wishes. A search for a new manager has commenced and the squad will be managed in the interim by Kevin MacDonald."

Interesting times lie ahead in the club, which is expected to announce their new manager in the near future. Names such as Brendan Rodgers, former Liverpool manager and David Moyes, former Manchester United manager, have already started doing the rounds.
