Aston Villa aren’t having much luck with their managers these days.
Fresh from the debacle of making Tim Sherwood their boss in February and then sacking him eight months later, they’ve welcomed new gaffer Remi Garde to the club – and spelled his name wrong.
Unfortunately for whoever built this story on Garde becoming the club’s next manager, the #WelcomeRemy they use spells the Frenchman’s first name wrong.
And people have been quick to pick it up on it on social media:

As we well know, it’s an easy enough mistake to make – but it just looks worse when it’s on as big a website story as announcing a new manager:
Still, the club, players and fans probably won’t care much after getting their new manager in the door.
Garde is highly-rated in his homeland after an impressive three-year spell at Lyon from 2011 to 2014, but will have the tough task of turning around a squad of players who have been used to failing recently.
Villa sit rock bottom of the English Premier League with just four points from 10 games.
Garde won’t be in the dugout for tonight’s clash with Tottenham at White Hart Lane, but is expected to be in the crowd watching, according to The Guardian.
Here’s a sample of the Villa fans reacting to the Garde appointment on Twitter.
