Aston Villa next manager: Four options to replace Dean Smith after brutal sacking

Frank Lampard

Lampard and Terry spent 13 years as Chelsea team-mates, so it would be some story if both men were to battle it out for the vacant Villa job over the international break. 

The midfielder’s advantage, however, is prior experience in management with Derby County and the Blues, where he was dismissed almost 12 months ago. 

While at Stamford Bridge, Lampard nurtured a reputation for bringing through young talent, something the Villa hierarchy are likely to pay attention to given the hoard of youngsters on their bench. 

Seemingly waiting for the right job to come along, Villa could provide the perfect opportunity for the triple Premier League champion to return to the sport.
