Feb. 11, 2015
LONDON (AP) — Aston Villa has fired manager Paul Lambert, a day after the club dropped into the Premier League relegation zone.
The Birmingham-based club said Wednesday it will announce a new manager "in due course."
Aston Villa, the club of American goalkeeper Brad Guzan, has lost five straight games and scored just one goal in eight league games. Lambert's final match was a 2-0 defeat at Hull on Tuesday.
