Aston Villa: Ashley Preece reacts to club tweet on Marvelous Nakamba

Aston Villa: Ashley Preece reacts to club tweet on Marvelous Nakamba -Aston Villa

Aston Villa correspondent Ashley Preece has been reacting to a tweet from the club on injured midfielder Marvelous Nakamba.

The Lowdown: Nakamba’s absence

The player suffered a serious knee injury against Liverpool back in December and hasn’t been seen in a Villa shirt since.

Could Villa soon find themselves in a relegation battle?

Yes, it's not looking good!

Yes, it's not looking good!

No, we'll be fine!

No, we'll be fine!

The 28-year-old has had surgery to repair the problem, with the club expecting the holding midfielder to be sidelined for three to four months.

Nakamba missed representing Zimbabwe at the Africa Cup of Nations due to his injury and has now been talking to Villa’s media team.

The Latest: Preece reacts to Villa’s tweet on Nakamba

Villa shared a clip of a smiling Nakamba on their official Twitter channel on Thursday afternoon and it elicited a gleeful response from Preece, who labelled it ‘brilliant’.

The journalist quote-tweeted the club’s post, saying: “Tears in my eyes! Brilliant to see Marvelous back smiling and amongst it at Bodymoor. His rehab is going well!”

The Verdict: Villa need him back

Nakamba, who Dean Smith described as ‘very mobile’, is needed back in Steven Gerrard’s squad.

Villa have struggled in recent months, winning just one of their last seven Premier League fixtures, with midfielder Douglas Luiz coming in for criticism from both Preece and Gregg Evans this month.

Hopefully Nakamba will make a return in March after three months out, and judging by the poor start to 2022, it seems as if the club could do with having their November Player of the Month back for the final few months of the season.
