Gerard Houllier breaks his silence over his departure from Aston Villa

Gerard Houllier has spoken publicly for the first time since his Aston Villa departure about the heart scare from which he “almost died”.

The 63-year-old Frenchman failed to win over the Villa fans during his relatively short stay in charge and, after suffering a recurrent heart problem, he was left with no choice but to leave the club.

The story is too old to be commented.
