Aston Villa tell staff redundancies are necessary

Staff at Villa Park have been warned about job cuts
Staff at Villa Park have been warned about job cuts

Aston Villa have warned their staff there will be job cuts due to the club's impending relegation from the Premier League.

The seven-times top-flight champions said "every effort" would be made to reduce staff numbers through voluntary redundancy, but admitted compulsory redundancies could be necessary.

Saturday's home defeat to Bournemouth all but confirmed Villa's relegation, leaving them 15 points from safety with only that number to play for.

A Villa statement read: "Aston Villa Football Club can confirm it has updated all staff on the proposed changes to the club structure in order to put it back on a firm footing.

"These changes will result in a headcount reduction, but every effort will be made through a voluntary scheme, to mitigate as much as is possible, the need for compulsory redundancies.

"The objective is to secure a sound financial platform from which the club can rebuild for the benefit of the fans, staff and sponsors.

"We recognise this is an extremely difficult time for all staff and the club will offer support to all staff affected."

Villa are also looking for a new manager to replace Remi Garde, who left the club at the end of March. Eric Black is in caretaker charge.
