Lots of Aston Villa fans have taken to Twitter to reveal their delight at Mahmoud Trezeguet’s Premier League debut against Tottenham.
The Egypt international signed for the Villans from Turkish outfit Kasimpasa this summer in a deal worth £8.75m, and was already a name to get fans excited before a ball had been kicked this season after he netted nine goals and recorded nine assists last term – the 24-year-old also scored at the summer’s iteration of the Africa Cup of Nations.
The 5 foot 11 attacker showed flashes of his quality against Spurs, causing a few problems for the north Londoners with his pace – Trezeguet had two shots, made one key pass and was fouled twice on his Premier League debut.
For such a small transfer fee, he definitely seems to be a player with the potential to become a threat in this league, if his encouraging debut was anything to go by.

Let’s take a look at what the Villa fans on Twitter have been saying about their new recruit…

So we can all agree that Engels and Mings will be quality for Villa this year after today’s performance. Also, Trezeguet looked dangerous every time he was on the ball. And, well, McGinn is just McGinn, always ?. #AVFC #UTV

Trezeguet I knew nothing about til he was rumoured to be signing. Devoured all I could. He didn’t disappoint. Engels was fearless. McGinn was too. Taylor shocked me. He’s obviously repaying Deano’s encouragement. The lads had fire in their bellies today. Down to Smith no doubt.

Engels and mings both look like they will have a good partnership both played well today and give Wesley time he will come good and trezeguet looked like our biggest threat #AVFC

Looks very promising, unfortunate with the miss in the first half, something maybe Dean or John can work on with him because he is a great player.#avfc

Final thought on today:
Trezeguet is going to be a massive handful and can see him getting many goals.
Feel safe with Heaton, Engels and Mings at the back.
Would like to see Guilbert, Nakamba and Targett against Bournemouth. #avfc

Agree with the majority of this. Trezeguet was outstanding and probably didn’t deserve to be subbed off and when spurs brought Eriksen on that’s what changed the game. #AVFC #UTV https://t.co/ZMk4S7Mafr

for me trezeguet showed his class today, I can’t help but think he was worlds above Jota… though that being said, I do think he makes a very strong sub. but after today’s performance trezeguet gets the start, no question. #avfc #utv ??
