Aston Villa are picking up some momentum in their battle to avoid relegation since the appointment of Tim Sherwood as manager.
The gilet-loving, over-celebrating, cringey-quote-giving boss at Villa Park has restored belief in his players, which was clearly seen as his team picked up a crucial 2-1 win over local rivals West Brom on Tuesday, putting them three points clear of the relegation zone and halting an awful run of consecutive defeats.
Well now the club is about to get another morale boost, as club legend Stiliyan Petrov will return to work as a coach with the first team.

The reaction from Villa fans on twitter has been predictably positive:
It will be fantastic to see Petrov on sidelines for the remainder of the season. The former Bulgarian international had been enjoying his down-time and re-discovering his love for football by playing Sunday League, but now it seems he's ready to get back to the day-to-day action of the Premier League.
