Marvelous Nakamba’s stock as an emerging English Premiership star comes under test this coming weekend when the Warriors linkman and his Aston Villa take on a Cristiano Ronaldo powered Manchester United in Match Day 6 at Old Trafford.
Nakamba put in a good shift weekend when he helped his team cruise to a famous 3-0 routing of Everton at Villa Park.
He did not hide his satisfaction when he posted later congratulating both his teammates and fans for living through a productive match day.
However, the Warriors star could find himself rubbing shoulders with arguably the world’s most fierce footballer running on two legs in an early kick-off Saturday.
Ronaldo has scored in all the five competitive matches played by his team so far, since re-joining the record English premiership champions recently.
Nakamba, who is enjoying good game time in the current English premiership season, will however not be the first Warriors star to rub shoulders with one of the two most iconic football stars in the world currently.
France based Stade de Reims and Warriors midfielder Marshall Munetsi was last month assigned to guard Lionel Messi, who was playing in his first match for his new club Paris Saint-German.
Although his team ended the encounter at the wrong end of a 2-0 score line, Munetsi came out with his dignity intact after stopping the tricky Argentine megastar from scoring.
