Aston Villa fans have been gushing on Twitter over recently posted footage of defender Frederic Guilbert.
This comes after Villa-focused Twitter account @thevillascout shared a post on their page that contained a video compilation of Guilbert’s highlights for Villa this season.
This post then led to a lot of Villa fans responding with their thoughts on the Frenchman.
Here’s a sample of Villa fans responding to the post:

Have you been impressed with Guilbert so far this season?
The full-back first signed to the club back in January 2019 from French side SM Caen for a fee of £4.5 million, but for the remainder of the 2018/19 season, Guilbert was loaned back to his former side before returning to Villa in the summer (per Transfermarkt). Now in his first season for Dean Smith’s team, Guilbert has made 27 appearances across all competitions, in which he has scored two goals and provided two assists (per Transfermarkt). These performances have resulted in Guilbert being awarded a season rating of 6.88 from WhoScored, which is the fourth-highest rating for a Villa player so far this campaign.
When it’s put together in a montage, you appreciate how good @fredguilbert24 really is ?
