Aston Villa sack manager Roberto Di Matteo after just one win since taking charge in the summer
Aston Villa have sacked manager Roberto Di Matteo after a run of just one victory in 12 games in charge of the club.
Owner Dr Tony Xia has lost patience following a run of one win in 11 Championship games to leave the side in 19th place despite sanctioning a £50million summer spend on new players.
The Italian's former assistant, Steve Clarke, will take temporary charge of Villa following Di Matteo's departure.
