Roberto Martinez is also on this list of contenders to become Villa’s next manager.
The 48-year-old is best known in England for his time at Wigan Athletic where he won the FA Cup with the Latics in 2013 against Manchester City in the final at Wembley, following a stunning late header by Ben Watson. Since then, he made the move to Everton where he recorded the Toffees' second-highest Premier League finish in his first full season at Goodison Park, managing fifth-place in the 2013/14 season.
Following two more seasons that proved to be unsuccessful in his three-year spell at Everton, Martinez was sacked, but his promising style of play saw the Spaniard go on to prove himself at international level with Belgium, managing a third-place finish at the 2018 World Cup in Russia, as well as reaching the quarter-finals at Euro 2020 where his side were knocked out by eventual winners, Italy. Belgium were are also semi-finalists in the Nations League.
Martinez has the odds of 8/1 to return to the Premier League as manager of Villa.
