Aston Villa Midfielder Faced With Waiting Game Before Introduction

Share This Post

 Aston Villa Head Coach Dean Smith admitted that midfielder Marvelous Nakamba is “still a little bit off it” with the player still off the pace in terms of his fitness after picking up a knock in this summer’s African Cup of Nations.

Nakamba has missed out of making his Premier League bow having not featured in both of Villa’s opening two match day squads.

The Zimbabwe defensive midfielder did extra training at Bodymoor Heath on Saturday in an attempt to get up to speed.

“He’s not done a lot of training before he came to us,” explained Smith. “So we’ve been working on his fitness.”

It’s unlikely that Nakamba will play any part in the upcoming Everton game, although it’s hoped he will feature by the end of the month.
