The midfielder had an afternoon to forget at Villa Park.
Aston Villa are used to disappointment this season and yesterday was no different. The club were defeated comfortably by Manchester City at Villa Park and subsequently dumped out of the FA Cup.
A hat-trick from Kelechi Iheanacho did the majority of the damage but there was plenty of poor performances from Villa players that aided and abetted this horror show.
One that stood out however was that of midfielder Idrissa Gana Gueye.
One of Villa's summer signings who has failed to shine Gana was actually having a reasonably decent game in the heart of midfield for Villa - even if it was not outstanding.
Then it went rapidly downhill.
His woeful backpass toward Brad Guzan turned out to be a delightfully weighted assist for the Nigerian teenager Iheanacho to bag his third goal.
He was then at fault for the fourth goal as well, giving away possession before City topped off the romp.
The midfielder has struggled for form in England since his summer move and this performance will not endear him to the majority of Villa fans.
Here is how they reacted on Twitter...
I remember somebody telling me Gana was a better version of Delph in August! Get rid and start blooding the youngsters! #avfc— Dan Keeler (@keelerdan) January 30, 2016
Gana's back pass which was from a cleared corner was shocking, non of our midfield looked for a forward pass today. #avfc— Gary Swain (@gazswain) January 30, 2016
Every player is shocking but Gana needs pointing out. Absolutely abysmal player, people trying to tell me he's a Delph replacement #AVFC— Reece (@ReeceLloyd_AV) January 30, 2016
Gana looks great when we're relatively in control of the ball, but he has awful lapses in concentration. Weak passing led to 3 and 4. #AVFC— The Holte (@TheHolteTweets) January 30, 2016
Still can't believe Gueye blamed Guzan after that back pass!!!! #avfc— Nidgey (@NigelHollier) January 30, 2016
I will, for as long as I live, never, ever know where that pass was meant to go from Gueye for that 3rd goal. https://t.co/HBmar1g6Dq— AVFC Worldwide (@AVFCWorldwide) January 30, 2016
A box of cereal is better than Idrissa Gana for villa— Jimbo (@IamtheJimbo) January 30, 2016
