Aston Villa striker Darren Bent wants a hungry new manager who can bring stability and also move the club forward.
With Villa having failed to find a suitable successor to Martin O'Neill, who left in August 2010, Bent believes only finding a genuine long-term replacement will allow the club to flourish in the Barclays Premier League.
"Whoever gets the job I am sure will understand the passion of the club and what that means to the fans," the striker told the Birmingham Mail. "He'll be hungry and understand what it means to the fans."
