Snodin backs Curbishley for Villa post
Alan Curbishley has been backed as the ideal choice to replace Martin O'Neill at Aston Villa by Glynn Snodin.
Snodin was number two to Curbishley during his spell in charge at West Ham, and believes the 52-year-old would have a "massive interest" in taking charge at Villa where he enjoyed a spell as a player.
Snodin, who is currently number two with Northern Ireland and Leeds, said: "The Aston Villa job will be of massive interest to Alan Curbishley.
"He has been waiting for a top club and it is a top club, a big club.
"He's been there as a player and the experience he has got in the Premier League is massive.
"He gets his team organised and people say it's not exciting football but he gets teams like he did at Charlton and West Ham playing well and keeps them in the top 10 every year.
"What some of those clubs have done since then is unbelievable and maybe shows just how good a job he did do."
Snodin believes Curbishley's Premier League experience makes him a better choice than USA coach Bob Bradley or Jurgen Klinsmann.
He said: "Jurgen Klinsmann has been mentioned also, and he is a world-renowned name, and I see Bob Bradley in the frame too.
"It's up to them what they want to do now. They might want that big name but they don't have any experience in the Premier League and Alan does.
"They have some great players, great young British players and any manager would be excited at the prospect of going there."
David Moyes meanwhile dismissed any link with Villa, insisting he was more than happy at Goodison Park, where he has been for the last eight years.
"I am loyal to Everton, I've always said that," the Scot told talkSPORT.
"It is a really good club and this year we have a really good team and we have a good chance of doing well."
Villa are expected to release a statement today regarding the managerial situation.
