Alan Curbishley interviewed for Aston Villa post

Alan Curbishley is among the candidates to be interviewed for the vacant manager's post at Aston Villa, BBC Sport understands.

The 52-year-old has been out of the game since parting company with West Ham in September 2008.

Former Ajax boss Ronald Koeman said earlier this week that he is interested in the job vacated by Martin O'Neill.

Caretaker manager Kevin MacDonald has also indicated he would like to be considered for the role.

Reserve-team coach MacDonald, 49, has overseen the first five games of the season after manager O'Neill's sudden resignation in July.

Villa have said that they want to appoint a manager with Premier League experience.

Curbishley spent 15 years with Charlton but moved to West Ham in December 2006.


After leaving the Hammers, he won a case for constructive dismissal against them.

He joined Villa as a player from Birmingham in 1983 and made 36 appearances for the club.

Villa are to speak to other candidates before making an appointment, which they hope will come before the next match at Stoke on Monday, 13 September.
