Aston Villa: Kevin MacDonald

Recommended Posts

9 minutes ago | Aston Villa

Villa confirmed MacDonald, 58, will not be in charge of the team pending an independent investigation.

Ex-midfielder Gareth Farrelly alleged MacDonald was "relentlessly negative" to him as a youth coach in the 1990s.

MacDonald was placed in caretaker charge of the first team earlier this season after Steve Bruce was sacked.

Former Aston Villa academy graduate and Republic of Ireland international Farrelly, now a qualified solicitor, claimed MacDonald was "incredibly aggressive, with constant verbal and physical bullying".

"It took me to a place at 20 that nobody should have to go to and I wouldn't wish it on anybody," Farrelly told The Guardian.

Villa has referred the allegations to the local and football authorities.
