Many Aston Villa fans have been buzzing at a tweet involving Matty Cash which recently emerged on social media.
The Aston Villa Twitter account relayed a tweet about Cash and posted a stat on the English right-back. The tweet said that the former Nottingham Forest star has made more interceptions in the Premier League this season than any other defender in the division.
Is Cash the best right-back in the Premier League?
Villa had signed the Englishman from Forest in the summer transfer window for a fee of £14.18 million. In the current campaign, he has made 14 Premier League appearances for Dean Smith’s men and has also racked up a couple of assists for the Birmingham-based club (as per Transfermarkt).
The 23-year-old has racked up a rating of 7.19 in the Premier League this season and in the Villa side, he has been the club’s seventh-best performer in that sense. In the Villa side, he has been the club’s best tackler too as he had made 2.6 tackles per game. He has made the fourth-highest number of clearances per game (as per Whoscored).
This shows the sort of signing he has been for Aston Villa. Tony Adams has already been full of praise for the Englishman and said: “Look at Villa, the right-back Matty Cash the other night. Wow. Slough boy. Dagenham and Redbridge. He’s gone to Nottingham Forest. What a player. He’s 23.
“He has Aubameyang in his pocket. Athletic, strong, what a great player.”
The tweet involving Cash from Villa’s Twitter account caught the attention of many fans, who made their opinion clear about the summer signing.
What did Villa fans make of this tweet about Cash?
“This guy has been amazing since arriving, probably the best signing we have had in the past 3 seasons, so underrated but does his job day in, day out and never lets us down.”
“Best in the league.”
“Love Cashy. Get him on all set pieces!!”
“You know when they say its cheaper to shop abroad? Let’s just consider the fact that we paid a lot less for Matty Cash than a certain other Midlands club paid for their new right back in the summer. Unreal business.”
“What a signing. Has taken to the Premier League like a duck to water.”
“Cash money doing the business.”
