A statement on the club's official website read:
Manager, Rémi Garde, has today left Aston Villa Football Club by mutual consent.
The Club would like to place on record its sincere thanks to Rémi for all his efforts during a difficult period and wish him well in the future.
Eric Black will take over as acting manager until the Club appoints a new manager.
