Plenty of Aston Villa fans have been reacting to Dean Smith’s comments on winger Trezeguet after they appeared on social media.
Trezeguet last featured for the club last month in the 2-1 defeat to Liverpool, with the £9m-rated man going off with a knee injury against Jurgen Klopp’s side.
He scored his first Premier League goals of the season the week prior to the trip to Merseyside, coming off the bench to net twice in a 3-1 win over Fulham.
Smith had this to say about Trezeguet’s situation when talking ahead of Villa’s clash with Everton, as reported by Birmingham Live.
“He’s had a significant knee injury which is normally nine months. We never like to put a time frame on injuries but that’s the average time to come back. Some come back earlier, some come back later.”
