Aston Villa: Fans deliver verdict on Marvelous Nakamba

Aston Villa: Fans deliver verdict on Marvelous Nakamba - Aston Villa

Plenty of Aston Villa fans have handed midfielder Marvelous Nakamba a rating for his performances this season.

The 26-year-old midfielder arrived at Villa Park last summer from Club Brugge having spent two seasons with the Belgian giants.

Arriving in a deal worth €12 million, the Zimbabwe international linked up with former Brugge duo Wesley and Bjorn Engels, and he has found consistent playing time under Dean Smith.

Making 24 Premier League starts, Nakamba has provided Villa with a solid option in the middle of the park. He has averaged 2.4 tackles, 1.7 interceptions and 1.4 clearances per game, although he has also made two errors leading to a shot and one leading to a goal (SofaScore).

His performances have been good enough to gain interest from Turkish giants Trabzonspor though, who were linked with a move, according to Fotomac (via TEAMTalk).

With the current break in football due to the pandemic, Villa fans will be hoping that Nakamba can play a part in helping the Claret and Blue fight off the threat of relegation.

Sitting 19th in the Premier League table, Smith’s side are hoping to avoid dropping back down to the Championship after gaining promotion via the play-offs this time last year.

Reacting to a tweet by fan account @VillaTil1Die, fans responded with mixed comments for the Zimbabwe midfielder. One however did like him to former Villan and current PSG star Idrissa Gueye…
