Aston Villa Women have appointed a new manager, Robert de Pauw. De Pauw, 42, joins from Bayer Leverkusen, where he achieved two top-six league finishes during his two-year tenure. He expressed his happiness and honor for being chosen as the women’s coach and is excited for the challenge. De Pauw recognizes the potential of the team, with both experienced and talented players. The club’s ambition is to be in the top six. His predecessor, Carla Ward, led the team to a seventh-placed finish last season. Villa’s head of women’s football, Lee Billiard, expressed delight in welcoming De Pauw to the club after a thorough search process.
