Stiliyan Petrov will take up a new role as assistant development coach, the Club has confirmed.
Aston Villa’s 33-year-old former captain announced his retirement on May 9, 2013 having successfully battled acute leukaemia.
“I’m very excited by this new challenge and I wish to thank the Club and the manager, Paul Lambert, for giving me the opportunity to continue my association with Villa, which I have always regarded as a privilege,” Petrov said.
