After Unai Emery’s team thrashed Brighton at Villa Park, Peter Crouch praised Ollie Watkins in the most recent Aston Villa news.
Ollie Watkins of Aston Villa was “the perfect person,” in Peter Crouch’s words, to lead the line against Brighton on Saturday. Crouch, a former England and Villa striker, was serving as a TNT Sports analyst as Villa hammered Brighton 6-1on Saturday afternoon at Villa Park. He waxed poetic about Watkins in his post-game analysis.
As Villa cruised to win in front of England boss Gareth Southgate, Taboola Watkins scored a hat-trick. After the game, his manager Unai Emery also praised him.
Watkins was the ideal player to play against Brighton because he makes those runs in behind, according to Crouch after the game. Ollie Watkins exerted every effort.
He lacked emotion. He routinely made the runs, entered, and completed them when he did.
Crouch’s assessment was echoed by Emery, who added: “His work and devotion to the club are really, very excellent. “I believe he is extremely content here, and we are also very content with him. He is getting better here and pursuing his right goals with the squad and his teammates as well. Today was a great illustration of the results of his commitment to his teammates and his daily efforts to be a demanding learner. He was a perfect fit for today. The club supported him, but he still played and performed an excellent job, scoring goals and contributing on defense to the team’s success.
