Aston Villa’s Trezeguet thankful for fans’ support

Egypt internationally has expressed his delight with the sentiment shown to him since joining the Premier League outfit from Kasimpasa

Mahmoud ‘Trezeguet’ Hassan has expressed his gratitude to the fans for the support he received during his debut season in England.

The 25-year-old joined Aston Villa from Turkish Super League side Kasimpasa on July 24, 2019 for a fee of £ 8.75 million.

During the process, he became Dean Smith’s ninth signing for the Premier League suit.

Before football left off with a crime following the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, Trezeguet had featured in 24 English top flight appearances – by scoring three goals in the process with his maiden effort coming in the 2-1 home defeat to Liverpool.

Talk to Aston Villa media, Egypt international reflects on his first season in English football, while he depends on his performances in support he received from supporters.

“I thank Aston Villa fans for standing with us and I will do everything I can to make them happy.

“I also thank the Egyptian people for their continuous support, I want to tell them that I did not achieve this on my own and I hope that my future success is not considered my own but a success for all of Egypt.

“I promise I will do my best every day to make them and my country proud.”

Aston Villa risks returning to the championship after their incredible position in the log. They are currently 19 and have collected 25 points from 28 matches.

Smith’s side went on a five-game losing streak – with their last defeat a 4-0 loss to Leicester City, after which EPL was suspended in the middle of Covid-19.

But ex-husband Al Ahly is trying to remain positive as it seems likely that the English elite division would return in June.

“It’s tough because you’re out of work and not doing what you love about playing football,” he continued.

“You want to train, play matches, join the club and meet daily challenges. This has its effects naturally.

“There is, however, a positive side when you get to spend more time with your family and get closer to them.”

He also revealed that he is working hard to maintain his fitness levels from home since the holy month of Ramadan began on April 23.

“It’s very tough because the day is very long here,” he added.

“When my family in Egypt breaks fast, I still pray afternoon prayers here.

“There are another three to four hours stuck between here and Egypt, but you have to keep your health and your weight at all times.

“Our body is our asset as a football player. Especially during this period because we stay at home mostly you have to see your weight and health. “
