Aston Villa have sacked manager Roberto Di Matteo after just 123 days, the club have announced.

The Italian has left with Villa 19th in the Sky Bet Championship despite spending around B£50million in the summer.

Di Matteo was appointed in June with a remit to gain an instant return to the Premier League after relegation last season but won just one of his 12 games in charge.
