Not the greatest manager at VP, but was ahead of his time. Celtic fans hold him in higher regard.

It was an interesting appointment at the time. It didn’t quite work out but a foreign manager was reasonably rare at the time. Ground breaking stuff from AVFC again.

He was highly regarded by UEFA for his coaching methods amd preparation, was definitely ahead of his time

Ahead of his time, I remember a story of him at Villa wanting players to do warm downs instead of going for a blast of pints after a match. Needless to say it didn't go down well with the players at the time.
