Trezeguet relishing Manchester City's visit to Villa Park

Trézéguet is looking forward to taking on one of the best teams in the world at Villa Park on Sunday.

The Egyptian has relished playing against England’s elite during his debut season at the club, with strikes against Liverpool and Chelsea accounting for two of his three goals.

And the 25-year-old is hoping he can step up once again when Manchester City come to town for the club’s first home game of 2020.


He said: “We play against some of the best teams in the world. In England, there are six or seven teams who can win the Champions League and win the cups.

“Every game you have to be ready because it is the best level. For me, I give everything in every game for my team.

“I always give everything for my team and for my coach. The next game will be tough because Manchester City are a strong team.”

Since making the move from Turkish side Kasimpasa in the summer, Trézéguet has settled in well to life in the Premier League, making 18 appearances and winning admirers for his all-action style of play.


Countryman Ahmed Elmohamady, who he says is like a “big brother” to him, has helped him integrate into a squad that was overhauled with 12 new signings after promotion to the top tier.

Trézéguet is more than up for the fight as Villa battle to stay in the Premier League this term and he believes the best is yet to come from Dean Smith’s team.

He said: “We are a good team and we’re trying to show people how good we are and that we can get better every game.

“Many of the players here are in their first year together and we have hope this year because we are trying to get better.

“I hope this year we will stay in the league and take a good position, and next year I promise we will try to do something more in the league.”
