Report: Aston Villa summer signing was convinced to join ‘Gerrard’s project’, he ‘might start to regret’ that choice
Aston Villa haven’t enjoyed the easiest start to the season, and currently sit just outside the relegation zone.
Steven Gerrard had his first summer transfer window in charge of the Villains, and brought in a number of new signings.
The 22-year-old Kamara signed for Aston Villa on a free transfer after his contract at Marseille expired,
However, Gerrard’s visit to Marseille to convince Kamara to move to the Premier League also played a part.
Kamara convinced by Gerrard’s project
Kamara is primarily a defensive midfielder, and has started every game for Gerrard this season.
There was a suggestion that Kamara’s arrival might unleash new club captain John McGinn, however neither have started the season brilliantly.
Aston Villa have yet to keep a clean sheet with Kamara in the team.
However, it was clear that there was an improvement in their last outing against Manchester City.
Kamara broke into the France squad for their Nations League matches in June.
Didier Deschamps has a wealth of talent to choose from in holding midfield.
The 22-year-old will be hoping he stays in contention for this month’s internationals ahead of November’s World Cup.
Kamara may need further convincing from Gerrard that his project is going as expected.
His manager will be hoping those regrets don’t start to creep in if things don’t turn around for Villa soon.
