Aston Villa brought the Zimbabwe international to Villa Park this summer and he has become a firm fan favourite for both club and country.
Aston Villa ace Marvelous Nakamba has spoken of his pride in representing Zimbabwe on the international stage, in conversation with the Villa Park media team, and a number of supporters - of club and country - praised the fan favourite's comments.
The newly-promoted Premier League side signed the 25-year-old for a reported £11million in the summer (Sky Sports News) on a contract until the summer of 2024, and to date he has made eight Premier League appearances for Dean Smith's side.
A fan favourite in Zimbabwe, Nakamba has also quickly won over many of the Villa faithful following his switch from Club Brugge, thanks to his tenacious performances, great work ethic and affable personality.
On Friday, the Villa media team published a YouTube interview with Nakamba, with a snippet shared on their Twitter channel where he talks of just how much it means to him to represent his nation:
And a number of fans responded with positive comments:
