New Aston Villa midfielder Trezeguet has paid tribute to Ahmed Elmohamady following his arrival at the club on Tuesday.
The 24-year old is a team-mate of Egyptian right-back Elmohamady at international level, and admits to confiding in our full-back ahead of a summer move to B6.
Trezeguet had no shortage of questions for his countryman when he first heard of a potential transfer – with Elmo convincing him it was the right option for his career.
He said: "Ahmed is a good friend of mine. He's like my brother, who I've played in the national team with for five years.
"He's my captain and always speaks with me about Aston Villa, saying it's an amazing club and that I'd be happy here.
"I asked him a lot of questions. He will help me and believes I will help the team.
"It will help having him here with me and I look forward to working with him again.
"As for joining, I'm happy to be here at one of the biggest clubs around. I hope I can help the team to be successful – I will do my best.
"I'm looking forward to playing in the Premier League – it's a dream."
