With Aston Villa confirming earlier in the week that Egyptian international winger Trezeguet would soon undergo surgery following the knee injury he unfortunately sustained late on in last weekend’s defeat to Liverpool, the well wishes he has received haven’t been a surprise at all.

Few knew what to expect when we reportedly agreed an 11million Euro deal with Kasimpasa for his services, and whilst it’s fair to say that technically he has proven to be a frustrating player for fans, few haven’t warmed to his heart on sleeve approach to effort and work rate.

In his short time with us so far, he’s also definitely chipped in with some much-needed and welcomed goals and I think we’d all agree the 26-year-old should actually have more than the nine he’s added to his club tally.

Surgery to repair the knee ligament damage he sustained in a challenge with Trent Alexander-Arnold in our last game will likely keep him out for around the 9-12 month mark judging by similar injuries and whilst everyone wishes him a speedy recovery, the unfortunate truth is we will likely move on from him during his spell on the sidelines and whatever further improvement he may have made in the remainder of the season, and next campaign, we’re now unlikely to benefit from that now in reality.

For his stronger supporters, hopefully, he can make a return sooner rather than later as he is contracted up until the summer of 2023, so he should have more than enough time to prove his fitness and show he’s a needed member and good squad option as we all love his attitue, regardless of how his injury now changes our more immediate strengthening plans.
