Boubacar Kamara now posts tweet ahead of Aston Villa's game against Everton this weekend
The Frenchman posted two pictures of him dribbling the ball with the caption: “Working hard to be ready for the next game at home. UP the Villa!!”
The midfielder started Villa’s opening day defeat to Bournemouth on Saturday, playing 82 minutes before being replaced by Brazilian Douglas Luiz.
The number 44 saw a lot of the ball in the middle of the park, completing more passes than all of his teammates except Lucas Digne.
He also nearly opened his Premier League account with a thunderbolt of a strike from outside the box, but the ball narrowly whistled past Mark Travers’ post.
Kamara posts tweet after Villa training
Kamara knows that his replacement on Saturday Douglas Luiz was a key player for Gerrard last season, and will need to be on top form to avoid being dropped.
Gerrard has already stated that Kamara will have an important role in his Villa side, as he hopes he’ll let new club captain John McGinn flourish in midfield.
The 22-year-old should provide a level of control in the middle of the park that will allow McGinn to be more adventurous, and Villa fans are all too familiar with what happens when you let McGinn get into shooting positions.
There’s already plenty of excitement around Kamara at Villa Park already, and if Gerrard keeps faith in him, it won’t be long before the Villa faithful are also signing his praises.
