Marvelous Nakamba Completes His Return From Injury

Marvelous Nakamba Completes His Return From Injury

Aston Villa midfielder Marvelous Nakamba marked his return to action from a knee injury by appearing for the Villains’ Under-23s in a 4-1 defeat to Stoke City in the Premier League 2 competition at Villa Park.

The Zimbabwe international, who played an hour, had not not featured since December 11, when he picked up a knee injury in a game against Liverpool.

Nakamba had to have surgery on his knee and has been sidelined for nearly five months. He had a tricky start to the season but thrived under Steven Gerrard, becoming a key player for him after he replaced Dean Smith in November.

Now Nakamba is really stepping up his comeback from injury and could be in contention for the game against Tottenham Hotspur on April 9. Gerrard said:

Hopefully, he can be back and have a full week leading into Tottenham and maybe be available to face them.

It might be a bit too soon for him now because he hasn’t had any serious game time. “Hopefully, he comes through that, recovers well and then he can be back with the group.

He’s been back training fully for ten, 12 days, and he’s smiling, getting closer and closer.

Nakamba’s return to fitness is massive for Gerrard, who has played Douglas Luiz at the base of midfield in the absence of the 28-year-old.

Once he is back, then Villa will have no injury worries with Lucas Digne also back after a hamstring problem that ruled him out of the Arsenal match last time out. 

Villa are reportedly interested in signing a new defensive midfielder in the summer, with Kalvin Phillips and Yves Bissouma of Leeds United and Brighton and Hove Albion both targets for Gerrard.

Villa have been dependent on Nakamba and as Gerrard indicated, other player failed to step up when Nakamba got injured.
