Great coach: Jordan Ayew has high praise for Remi Garde

While Remi Garde has only been in charge of Aston Villa for just over six weeks, he already seems to have made a big impression on some members of his squad.

The former Lyon manager signed a three-and-a-half-year deal to replace Tim Sherwood as Villa boss at the start of November but he has so far been unable to lift the club off the bottom of the Premier League table, having taken just two points from his first five games at the helm.

Nevertheless, striker Jordan Ayew has been extremely impressed by the impact his new boss has made on the training ground, and with performances also improving, believes it will not be long before results follow.

Speaking to AVTV, the Ghana international said: ‘He is perfect, magnificent. I’m very happy. He has settled in very, very well and his communication is perfect – he speaks English.

‘I’m very pleased and I think everyone is happy to have him in the job.’
