Aston Villa fans laud Mbwana Samatta

It was absolutely imperative that Aston Villa brought in a striker during the January transfer window following Wesley’s season-ending injury and Jonathan Kodjia’s departure.

They, of course, did do that and got Mbwana Samatta from Belgian giants Genk, following that up with the acquisition of Borja Baston.

The latter of these has not yet made his impact, but the Tanzanian has already got himself into the good books of Villa fans.

The goal against AFC Bournemouth was massive for him after netting on his Premier League debut, something he mentioned during an interview with the club. He also took time to reference the trust it led to his teammates having in him.

This has also helped his cause with the supporters. In response to his words, one stated: “you’ve fitted in perfectly”, while another referred to him as a “leader”.

Did he really play for us?! No Villa fan has managed to name all of these obscure Villans….

Can you name this obscure former Aston Villa player?

He has made an impact for the team outside of his goal during the two Premier League games he has played, making four key passes and two dribbles, while maintaining a pass completion rate of 81.1%.

Perhaps the greatest compliment the 27-year-old will receive is the confidence that Villa fans have in him to make a positive contribution moving forward.

One fan predicted he “will score tomorrow”, while another even suggested “he’s going to be the difference between 17th and 18th” and that he will “frighten” Manchester City’s defence at Wembley.

Will Samatta score against Southampton?

Yes

Yes

No

No

If he fulfils this prophecy, then the striker will become even more popular at Villa Park.

Meanwhile, Villa youngsters have been hit with a ticking timebomb.
