Zimbabwean entrepreneur, Philip Mataranyika took his time to watch Marvellous Nakamba play against Brighton on Saturday.
The entrepreneur took to social media to share some of his pictures watching the match.
“Watched Aston Villa play at home to Brighton yesterday in the player’s box, a match they won by two goals without a response, breaking a winless streak of 5 games, thanks to #marvellousnakamba my man of the match by a very long shot, Zim has talent, welcome Stevie Gerrard. Eternally grateful for the privilege Marvellous,” he posted.
Ollie Watkins and Tyrone Mings scored in the final six minutes as Steven Gerrard enjoyed a memorable first match as Aston Villa manager with victory over Brighton.
Gerrard’s bow as a Premier League boss looked set to end in a goalless stalemate until his side broke from an 84th-minute Brighton corner.
Villa went the full length of the field as substitute Ashley Young sent Watkins running down the left wing, with the England forward cutting inside the box before delivering a smart finish beyond Jason Steele.
A minute from time, the hosts got their second as Adam Webster’s attempt to clear John McGinn’s cross went straight to Mings, who finished at the first attempt.
Villa might have had a third but Steele did well to deny Leon Bailey in stoppage time.
The victory ended a run of five straight defeats for Villa, with Gerrard taking applause from all sides of the ground before running down the tunnel in obvious delight.
