Prince William requested Grant to coach Aston Villa

Ghana coach Avram Grant has revealed that Prince William  of him as to if it would be possible to take over the reigns at Aston Villa.

The former Chelsea manager led Ghana to a runner-up place at the just ended Cup of Nations and the Duke of Cambridge -who is a Villa fan- is an admirer of Grant, and would like him to take charge of the relegation threatened club.

‘Aston Villa is a great club, with great fans and it is an honour to have my name mentioned with them, but I want to continue with Ghana for the next two years, until the end of my contract. I enjoy managing Ghana very much,’ Grant toldSky Sports.

‘I met Prince William and he asked me “why don’t you come to Aston Villa?”. I said: “when you become the chairman, I will come”.

‘As long as my name is mentioned, I feel good with this, but not more than that. I want to continue with Ghana.’

Villa parted ways with manager Paul Lambert on Wednesday after a series of poor results saw them fall to 18th on the log.
