A story claims that Steven Gerrard's employment would have been saved if Aston Villa had signed a rising Premier League star.
Aston Villa fired Gerrard on October 20 immediately after their 3-0 loss to Fulham at Craven Cottage. At that point, the West Midlands team had only won twice in the Premier League and was performing far below expectations.
After acquiring elite players like Diego Carlos and Boubacar Kamara, Villa's owners hoped that Gerrard could assist them in their push for European qualification.
In his debut game in command, Villa defeated Manchester United 3-1 at home, giving him a winning start.
The following game, the Red Devils exacted revenge on Villa in the Carabao Cup, but Emery's team bounced back from that loss by defeating Brighton to earn their fifth league victory of the year.
Emery now has the World Cup break to develop his strategy and transfer plans. Already, it appears that the Spaniard will enjoy a more fruitful tenure at the club than Gerrard did.
