Aston Villa’s official TikTok account has recently posted a video trolling Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Nelson Semedo.

During the latest round of Premier League fixtures, Nuno Espirito Santo’s Old Gold hosted Dean Smith’s Villans at Molineux (per BBC).

Having been at a stalemate for the majority of the match, the tie was decided late on as Anwar El Ghazi netted a spot-kick in second-half stoppage time to seal three points for Villa.

The penalty was awarded to Smith’s side after Scottish attacker John McGinn was brought down in the box by Wolves’ summer signing, Semedo.

First up in this Gareth Barry quiz, which club did Villa sign the midfielder from?

On Monday, Villa’s official TikTok account posted footage of the penalty incident to the social media app and made light of Semedo’s blunder (per Aston Villa).

The footage shows McGinn getting goal-side of the Portuguese full-back and as the defender brings the attacker down, the lyrics of the music say: ‘Oh no. Oh no. Oh no, no, no, no, no.’

After that, the video shows a short clip of El Ghazi slotting home the penalty as he sent Rui Patricio the wrong way and the Villa players then celebrating.

TIF Thoughts on Villa’s trolling of Nelson Semedo…

As can be seen in the TikTok video which was shared by Aston Villa’s official account, the club was clearly trying to make light of the incident involving Wolves’ defender, however, it is perhaps a little on the harsh side.

Was Aston Villa's TikTok video on Nelson Semedo harsh?

No, it was funny

No, it was funny

Yes, it was harsh

Yes, it was harsh

Due to his mistake which ultimately cost the Old Gold a point, Semedo was awarded a 5/10 performance rating by the Birmingham Mail, which stated that the full-back’s defending was ‘unorthodox’ at times.

Seemingly, the poor performance from Semedo was just a blip from the Portuguese defender as he has been the third-best performer in Nuno Santo’s squad in the league this season (per WhoScored).

So, hopefully, despite Villa’s official TikTok account mocking him, the 27-year-old defender can quickly put the incident behind him.
