Aston Villa’s Rongtian He has urged the fans to get behind the team and give under-fire manager Steve Bruce their full support.

Villa are currently suffering from a recent lapse in form, leaving them 14th in the Championship with their promotion hopes in tatters.

Steve Bruce’s side are winless in six games, and sit just eight points clear of the relegation zone.

After seeing their major squad reshuffle in January reap little reward, many fans have started to grow impatient with the club’s management.

Bruce brought in as many as eight new players last month and while it is still too early to judge them, the results on the pitch have not improved.

However, He, who acts as chairman Tony Xia’s personal assistant, insisted that Bruce was the right man for the job.

He took to his personal Twitter account on Sunday to lend his support to the Villa chief, claiming that he has finally brought stability to the club.

He’s message of support for Bruce comes after Xia earlier laid down the law with a message of his own to the Villa fans.

Xia insisted that club were still on track to meet their long-term targets, and that fans had to be patient.

Aston Villa can end their slump with a win against Ipswich on Saturday, with three points firing them back within reach of the Championship’s top 10.

Defeat, however, could see as many as five sides overtake them in the table, leaving them in 19th place.

In other Aston Villa news, this is why the club need to start taking themselves seriously.
