It would be fair to say that there was a lot of excitement amongst Aston Villa fans when their club managed to sign Anwar El Ghazi during the summer.
El Ghazi moved to Villa on loan from Lille, and it was some coup for the Championship outfit – and former boss Steve Bruce – when considering the attacker’s talent.
However, it has not quite happened for the 23-year-old, who has scored just once in the Championship during the 2018-19 campaign.
Dutchman El Ghazi came off the bench in Villa’s Championship clash with Norwich City on Tuesday night, and Dean Smith’s side were winning 1-0 at that stage.
Norwich turned it around to record a 2-1 win over Villa at Carrow Road, however, and a number of the club’s supporters were unhappy with El Ghazi’s performance.
The loan move has not quite worked out thus far, and a selection of the Twitter reaction from the frustrated Villa supporters can be seen below:
El ghazi doesent help the defence, just walks around.

On Saturday there were a lot of shouts about El Ghazi not getting in the matchday squad, today he came on for Adomah & was toilet. Let’s face it none of us know what we’re talking about, on to Friday, UTV #AVFC

I think el ghazi has lost his edge having not played much, he offered very little today. Hogan needs to back up his words and work his socks off, he didn’t make the most of his opportunity but the saving grace for him is neither did many of his team mates #avfc

El Ghazi terrible again! One good cross but other than that too weak & terrible off the ball! Shame Adomah went off!

I’d send Bolasie and El Ghazi back,
