The appointment of Paul Lambert to the hot seat came when on Sky Sports he announced that he was already working on strengthening his underperforming squad.
Lambert pledged to excite the club's supporters with his team's performances.
"I'll give it everything I've got to make sure we are as successful as we can be,"
"We have to get the fans excited. We will need them to stay with us and I am sure they will."
The former Norwich boss takes over from Alex McLeish, who was sacked after Villa finished only two points above the Premier League relegation zone.
Lambert, has already talked to ex-Villa boss Martin O'Neill
"He was brilliant about it. He was really really complimentary about it,"
"There is a lot of expectancy at the club and it is not something I'm going to shy away from,"
"It's something I will thrive on, hopefully.
"We will try to get results as quickly and as best as we can. We have to play football the right way.
"We have to give them [the fans] something. We will need them - I think they will come in their thousands to watch us and it is up to us to give them something back."
Lambert would not expand on what happened at Norwich who were clearly unhappy that their manager jumped ships.
