It was certainly a busy summer for Aston Villa head coach Dean Smith, as he worked long and hard with Christian Purslow and Suso to rebuild the squad ahead of our maiden year back in the Premier League, but it’s not unfair to say that Egyptian winger Trezeguet is yet to fully impress.
That’s natural, some players bed in far quicker than others, but we’ve certainly seen flashes from the 25-year-old and he can probably only truly be judged in the second half of the campaign, but he definitely hasn’t been a flop.
With the November international break now behind us, last week the former Kasimpasa player spoke about his move over the summer to the Express and Star, and again, he was saying all the right things about his experience in England so far.
“I am loving it. It’s a huge club, a good team and terrific supporters. I always want to make them happy and I hope we do lots of times between now and the end of the season. I used to speak to Elmo in the national team and I always used to say to him ‘I want to come to the Premier League and I want to join Aston Villa’. It was a team I have always liked, I used to think ‘I’d like to join that club.’ Elmo used to smile but isn’t it amazing that we are both here now. When I used to watch the Premier League in Egypt, I always used to follow Aston Villa. It was a club I admired and liked.”
With more improvement in the last two matches against Liverpool and Wolverhampton Wanderers where he got his club account up and running with a goal in each game, hopefully, that’ll do his confidence the world of good and we’ll see even more from him in the coming games.
