Ian Culverhouse and Gary Karsa will rejoin Lambert at Villa Park after leaving Norwich

Aston Villa’s management team has now taken shape with the appointment of two of Paul Lambert’s most trusted colleagues. Ian Culverhouse will be the new assistant manager with Gary Karsa becoming head of football operations.

They’ve worked together at Norwich, Wycombe and Colchester and Paul Lambert is delighted to have them on board: “It’s great for them to be here at the Club and I’m delighted they have joined me,”

“They have been with me for the past six years which is a long time and we’ve built up an understanding and a trust. I trust them and they have been great for me. We have always bounced well off each other and we’re all looking forward to the job at hand here at Villa.”
