Gerard Houllier steps down as Aston Villa manager
Mr Houllier is parting company with Aston Villa because of concerns over his health after his recent heart problems. The signs were that Houllier's reign was coming to an end after he underwent further medical tests before the weekend.
Aston Villa will now step up their search to find a replacement for Houllier, with Fulham's Mark Hughes one of the early names to be linked with the post.
