Nakamba Crowned Aston Villa’s Player of the Month

Warriord defensive midfielder, Marvelous Nakamba has been named Aston Villa’s November Player of the Month by the club’s supporters.


Nakamba received 36% of the votes finishing well ahead of fellow midfielder John McGinn who got 24% of the votes while striker Ollie Watkins was on 12%.


In a statement on their official website Aston Villa said Nakamba was a worthy recipient of the accolade, his first since joining the ambitious Premier League team from Belgian side Club Brugge in August 2019.



“Aston Villa supporters have voted Marvelous Nakamba as the club’s November Player of the Month, in partnership with Cazoo. The midfielder put in hugely impressive displays as he started all three matches last month against Southampton, Brighton & Hove Albion and Crystal Palace,” Villa said.


“Zimbabwe international Nakamba played every minute under head coach Steven Gerrard in the wins against both the Seagulls and Eagles, collecting the club’s man of the match award for his performance in the 2-1 triumph at Selhurst Park. The club’s Player of the Month poll, in association with our principal partner Cazoo, attracted almost 8,000 votes from Villa fans,” the club said.
