Aston Villa manager Alex McLeish will hold talks about his future with board members at a scheduled meeting on Monday.

Alex McLeish meets with Aston Villa board to discuss his future

McLeish has faced mounting speculation during a disappointing first season at Villa Park.

A 2-0 defeat at Norwich on Sunday left Villa, who have only won seven games all season, in 16th place and just two points above the relegation zone.

“I will go into the meeting as positive as possible,” McLeish said.

“You can start fearing for your job at any time. That would be really negative.”

McLeish faced widespread protests from Villa supporters after leaving relegated Birmingham to take over from Gerard Houllier 11 months ago.

Villa, who only won four of 19 home league games, effectively secured their Premier League status with a 1-1 draw against Tottenham in the penultimate game of the season.

McLeish, 53, remained defiant after the defeat at Carrow Road despite facing another angry backlash from supporters.
