New Aston Villa signing Frederic Guilbert has had quite the weekend. After being relegated with his loan club Caen, he was then witnessing his new side achieve promotion.
After signing for Villa on transfer deadline day in January, the right-back was then loaned back to France for the remainder of the season.
As a result, he’s yet to play for the Villans but that hasn’t stopped their supporters from showing signs of appreciation towards the Frenchman.
After they secured a return to the top-flight on Monday, a variety of special messages were sent to the 24-year-old on Twitter.
One supporter claimed he’d be a massive player for Villa next term whilst another suggested he’d be class. A further fan said that Guilbert must feel like he’s won the lottery, after initially signing for a Championship team.
Another member of the Villa Park faithful assured the new acquisition that he’d like it at the club.
The versatile defender, who can also play at centre-back, was one of Caen’s star men this term despite relegation. He played 38 times across all competitions, scoring once and claiming two assists.
Here are the best messages.
Welcome Guilbert. You’ll be a massive player for us next season!! ?
