‘Prime McGinniesta’, ‘absolute baller’: Some Villa fans react to video of 17-year-old prospect

A number of Aston Villa fans have praised academy ace Carney Chukwuemeka after the club shared a video of his impressive assist for the Villans Under-23s last time out.

The 17-year-old, who has been playing regularly for Villa’s Under-23s since January and is also an England youth international, penned his first professional contract earlier this week.

Chukwuemeka was also involved with the club’s first team during pre-season as Dean Smith’s contingent stepped up preparations for the 2020-21 campaign.

The young midfielder featured for Mark Delaney’s charges on Monday, helping them to a 3-1 win over Wolves as Louie Barry netted a brace and Aaron Ramsey also got on the scoresheet.

Playing out from the back, Chukwuemeka reclaimed possession just outside his own area and advanced deep into the opposition half before setting up Barry, who did the rest.

Villa’s Twitter account urged fans to check out Chukwuemeka’s skill and assist on the day, and some responded:

 

Villa’s U23s are next in Premier League 2 action on Friday 30 October when they host Sunderland U23s.
