PSV manager Peter Bosz has disclosed that he turned down the chance to lead Aston Villa in the previous season.


Following Steven Gerrard’s dismissal in October of last year, Villa was searching for a replacement. After just 11 months in charge, he departed Villa after the 2022–2023 season got off to a rough start.


Villa approached Bosz, despite the fact that Thomas Tuchel, a former manager of Stamford Bridge, and current Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino were being connected to the position. Bosz acknowledged having “serious doubts” about accepting the position and questioned his ability to apply his ideology to English football in an interview with Algemeen Dagblad (via Sport Witness).



“I thought, can I bring in the football that suits me?” he said. The sixty-year-old has mostly worked as a coach for teams in his own Netherlands, France, and Germany.

Wolves also gave him some thought after Bruno Lage left Molineux.

Bosz has complimented Unai Emery for his efforts at Villa since taking over for Gerrard, in the meantime.

“Sure, Villa have invested heavily but all clubs in England do that,” he stated.

“That was very astute of Emery.

He demonstrates once more that the most powerful man in your club makes the decision when it comes to hiring a trainer.”
