Marvelous Nakamba’s sublime display under new Aston Villa manager Steven Gerrard has paid off after the Warriors linkman was voted November player of the month by club supporters.
The former Bantu Rovers star has started in all the three matches involving Southampton, Brighton & Hove Albion and Crystal Palace under the Liverpool legend.
Nakamba played every minute under head coach Gerrard in the wins against both the Seagulls and Eagles, collecting the club’s man of the match award for his performance in the 2-1 triumph at Selhurst Park.
The club’s Player of the Month poll, in association with our principal partner Cazoo, attracted almost 8,000 votes from Villa fans. The top three players were:
1) Marvelous Nakamba – 36%
2) John McGinn – 24%
3) Ollie Watkins – 12%
It is not the first time Nakamba has enjoyed the accolade under his paymasters abroad.
He was in 2017 named Player of the Month of September for Belgian top flight side, Club Brugge.
