Nakamba honored by Hwange

Aston Villa midfielder Marvelous Nakamba is set to have a statue erected in his honor in Hwange.

Nakamba (25) has sparked interest in Aston Villa in Zimbabwe after sealing a £12 million move from Club Brugge to the Premier League new boys.

According to athletics, town chiefs in Hwange where Nakamba was born, are planning to build a statue in his honor. Aston Villa have agreed on a deal worth more than £11m for Club Brugge midfielder Marvelous.

Zimbabwe legend, Peter Ndlovu said:

“Marvelous knows that we are recognizing his hard work with this idea and hopefully the statue will be a confidence booster for him.”

He said Nakamba makes an appearance for Aston Villa, despite being a long-term target for the club. Nakamba made a debut for Aston Villa in last night’s Carabao Cup clash against Crewe Alexandra.
