Aston Villa manager Steven Gerrard’s alleged discipline list has reportedly been ‘leaked,’ and it features some harsh fines and punishments.
He is currently in the midst of his first pre-season with the club and the former England star has apparently used it as the perfect opportunity to set some disciplinary laws that highlight he will be no pushover.
The alleged list was shared on Twitter, and there are the standard fines such as a player being ‘charged £500 for being late to training’ and an ‘extra £200 per minute they are not on the pitch’.

Wearing the wrong matchday attire will also ‘cost them £100’.
If a player gets booked during a match, they will ‘face a £200 fine’.
Although, if someone was to get sent off, they must ‘take the team out for dinner and pay for everyone’s meal’.
There are also some offbeat punishments too, such as if a ‘player forgets to bring birthday cake in, they will be fined £50’.
However, there is one disciplinary action that could possibly be the most embarrassing, and it won’t even cost the players a penny.
Allegedly, the list says that players will get the chance to vote on who was the ‘worst performing individual in training’.
The recipient of this alleged fine will be humiliated by being forced to wear a jumper saying ‘I was the worst trainer’ for the following week.
The former Liverpool star took over the Birmingham-based football team in November 2021.
Despite a strong start, where he won three of the first five games as manager, results started going against their way and they finished the last campaign in 14th place.
After making some key signings over the summer, Gerrard will be hoping for Aston Villa to push for a top-half finish in the Premier League this year.
Aston Villa’s first game of the season is against newly promoted side Bournemouth, which will kick off at 3pm on August 6.
