June 17 (Bloomberg) -- Aston Villa appointed Alex McLeish as manager five days after he resigned as coach of the Premier League soccer team’s archrival Birmingham.

McLeish, 52, will assume his duties with immediate effect, Villa said in a statement on its website. He becomes the seven-time English champion’s third manager in nine months after Martin O’Neill resigned five days before the start of last season and Gerard Houllier stepped down on June 1 because of heart problems.
