Aston Villa have confirmed that former FA communications officer Adrian Bevington is now working with the club.
Bevington was approached by ex-FA chairman David Bernstein to work with Villa’s recently revamped football board as they review the current management structure and implement the necessary changes that arise from it.
Bernstein said: “Adrian has a wealth of experience with over 20 years working at the highest level of football.
“He was the Managing Director of Club England and worked with many managers and coaches during his 17 years at The FA.
“More recently he has worked with several clubs and the Welsh FA, and I’m convinced his experience, contacts and understanding of football will be a tremendous asset to Aston Villa Football Club.”
Bevington worked with Howard Wilkinson, Peter Taylor, Kevin Keegan, Sven-Goran Eriksson, Steve McClaren, Fabio Capello and Roy Hodgson during his time with England.
