Who is Aston Villa manager Dean Smith?

Dean Smith is the current manager of Aston Villa after being appointed in October 2018. Smith was born in West Bromwich, England on 19 March 1971 and is 48 years of age. Smith previously played football professionally for clubs around England such as Sheffield Wednesday, Walsall and Leyton Orient.

In his playing career, Smith played at centre back for Walsall, Hereford United, Leyton Orient, Sheffield Wednesday and Port Vale. He made 566 competitive appearances across his 16 year career scoring 54 goals. After retiring in 2005, Dean Smith waited 6 years before getting back into football where he was appointed as manager of Walsall in January 2011. In his time at Walsall, Smith finished as runner up in the 2014-15 Football League Trophy and took the club out of the relegation zone before moving on to Brentford in November 2015.

Smith signed many players at both clubs and was well known making many transfers at each team he joined. He also made a name for himself as being able to sign cheap players and do big things with the squad on a tight budget. At Brentford, he turned the club into a team that could push for the playoffs before leaving the club in 2018 after finishing in 9th place in two seasons in a row.

In October 2018, Dean Smith was appointed as manager of Aston Villa alongside assistant manager John Terry. In Smith’s opening season at the club, he guided the club to the EFL Championship promotion playoffs. Aston Villa beat West Bromwich Albion in the semi-final on penalties to guarantee their spot in the playoff final where they beat Derby County 2-1 in Wembley. Dean Smith has won many individual honours including the Football League One manager of the month award in January 2013 and August 2015 along with the EFL Championship manager of the month award in March 2019.

Next season, Dean Smith has a huge job on his hands which is to keep the club in the Premier League. The board have already made huge signings in Wesley from Club Brugge for £22m and Tyrone Mings from Bournemouth for £20m and Dean Smith will look to strengthen the first team further in the next few weeks. With a full pre season behind him, Dean Smith could lead Aston Villa to a very successful season in the upcoming campaign.
