“These three appointments represent the start of a new era and direction at Aston Villa and we are delighted to secure their services after an extensive search,” said Villa CEO Christian Purslow.

“And Jesus also brings a huge amount of experience in his particular role having worked with some of the biggest clubs in Europe.
