Aston Villa Owner Randy Lerner Makes Rare Appearance at Home Game

Randy Lerner puts Aston Villa up for sale

Aston Villa’s American owner, Randy Lerner, has not been seen at Villa Park since 2012, and it is thought that he now may have a change of heart about selling the club. Lerner came to Aston Villa to see the club play against Arsenal.  Lerner has not attended an Aston Villa game since its 3-0 defeat to Wigan Athletic, and he was joined this time by the new chief executive, Tom Fox.

Perhaps Aston Villa’s improved performance is enough of a reason for Lerner to possibly delay the sale, and its manager has also agreed to another long-term contract. The club is costing Lerner overhead, but not as much as it would have if Aston Villa had managed to make a deal to acquire Tom Cleverly from Manchester United for $13 million.

Randy Lerner has been making more trips to Birmingham from New York since the departure of the former CEO Paul Faulkner, but this might be merely coincidental. In any case, Lerner hasn’t been pursuing his plans to sell the club very aggressively, if at all, and it is likely the move to sell might be cancelled.
