Aston Villa appoint Dean Smith as boss; John Terry to serve as assistant

Aston Villa have appointed Brentford boss Dean Smith as their new manager with former England captain John Terry as his assistant, the English Championship club said on Wednesday.

Smith, who developed a reputation for playing exciting, attacking football at Brentford, is a Villa fan and will replace Steve Bruce, who was sacked last week following the second-tier side's dismal start to the season.

Former Chelsea and England skipper Terry decided to call time on his playing career on Sunday.

He had been without a club since leaving Villa following their playoff defeat by Fulham at Wembley Stadium last season.

Villa have also appointed Jesus Garcia Pitarch as Sporting Director.

"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," Villa CEO Christian Purslow said.

"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...

"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."

Villa are 15th in the Championship with three wins in their opening 12 games.
