Aston Villa manager rumour: Roberto Di Matteo has two games to save his job
Pressure is growing on Roberto Di Matteo's position as manager of Aston Villa, according to reports in two broadsheet newspapers.
The Telegraph and the Guardian are both carrying online reports claiming Di Matteo could be fired if he fails to win either of his next two Championship games.
Villa visit Barnsley on Tuesday evening before travelling to Preston North End on Saturday afternoon.
Nine points from nine games has frustrated the clubs hopes of pushing for promotion and left them languishing 17th in the early season table.
