Warriors and Aston Villa midfielder Marvellous Nakamba who has been a revelation under new coach Steven Gerrard has been named as the player of the month at the Claret and Blue Army.

Nakamba, a defensive midfielder has been in sublime form throughout November.

He has started most matches under the new manager, after being used sparingly by former coach Dean Smith.

Steven Gerrard, a Liverpool legend and a top midfielder during his playing time extolled Nakamba`s playing qualities.

“He has been fantastic, he’s trained extremely well,” Gerrard revealed.

He has been really open, his two performances have been outstanding. We were aware of Marvelous before we came in, but he is somebody who has really stood up and jumped out, he is basically said in the two weeks, I am m here, I want to contribute, I want to be available,” said Gerrard.

 

 

“He is still young, he can get better. He is around the right people for that to happen, he is in the right environment for that. We’re really pleased to have him,” added Gerrard.

A few months ago, Nakamba was among those earmarked with a departure from Villa Park but it appears that a change in leadership at the club has given him a new lease of life and rejuvenated his playing.
