Gerard Houllier formally signed a three-year deal with Aston Villa on Friday, two weeks after agreeing to succeed Martin O’Neill as coach.
He revealed at his press conference ahead of Wednesday’s League Cup tie with Blackburn that he had shaken hands with club owner Randy Lerner on the contract.
Former Liverpool manager Houllier, 63, will take charge of his first Premier League game for more than six years when Villa face Wolves at Molineux on Sunday.
