Well, this is interesting news and although some might lament the departure, I think this might actually be very good for Villa.
Kevin MacDonald who undoubtedly has been a fine servant to AVFC and has brought many great results for the reserve set up, has decided it is time to move on and has announced he is leaving.
MacDonald told The Official Site:
'I've had an incredible 17 years at Aston Villa, one of the biggest clubs in the country, and wish to thank all the staff and players I have worked with during my time at the club.
'I wish Aston Villa every success in the future.'
CEO Paul Faulkner said: 'As a club, we are immensely grateful for the contribution Kevin has made in more than 17 years at Villa.
Adding, 'The whole of Aston Villa Football Club will wish Kevin well.'
Now, in some ways this might look brutal, but despite his good service, we have a new manager, a chance for a totally fresh start and maybe a total shake up top to bottom is exactly what is needed, after-all, in the last ten or more years, we've hardly been a successful club have we?
I hope Kev goes on to get a full managers job, as he has been linked with before. Some are asking if he could possibly be in line for the Blues job? If he is, I'd wish him luck and say they'd be lucky to have him.
Whatever, I think this is good for him and great for us.
A fresh manager, a new chapter, let Lambert get the entire playing side sorted as he wants.
Exciting times and fairwell Kev, and thanks.
