Many Aston Villa fans are reacting to the performance of attacker Trezeguet in the match against Wolves on Saturday night.
The winger has now played 17 times this season, and has grabbed one assist, but he is yet to score this term and this will definitely be a worry for a side struggling to find goals without Jack Grealish.
The Egypt star has not shown enough attacking intent in recent months as he has only managed 1.5 shots, 0.6 key passes and 0.8 successful dribbles per game (WhoScored, pre-Wolves).
Trezeguet came in for the Midlands derby as a replacement for Anwar El-Ghazi, who was also unavailable for the match due to a toe injury he picked up against Sheffield United. Clearly El-Ghazi was missed, with one fan calling Trezeguet ‘wasteful’, whilst another said they doubt the winger has a brain.
Valued at £9 million, he is contracted until June 2023 (Transfermarkt), but if he doesn’t start improving, then it would be quite likely that the club will see him as surplus to requirements and look to sell him on sooner rather than later.
Here is how Villa fans reacted to his performance:
“Trez is having a mare. How many times has he given the ball away already?”
“Elmo and Trez shouldn’t be anywhere near this first team”
“Trezeguet mentally kills me, so wasteful”
“If we want to progress next season, definitely going to have to upgrade on Trezeguet & El Ghazi. Both far too inconsistent”
“Not sure trezeguet has a brain”
“Moronic from Trezeguet there”
