Aston Villa striker Jonathan Kodjia has heaped praise on Ghana international Albert Adomah.

The Ghanaian winger has been outstanding for the Villa Park outfit since joining them in the summer transfer window.

The 28-year-old joined Aston Villa from English Premier League side Middlesbrough.

“Albert is a very good footballer," he said in an interview.

“We see that every day in training. He’s had a few injury problems at the start of the season, but now he’s getting a run of matches, the fans will see his quality.

“He is a very good guy – always smiling, always joking, always bringing good feelings to the dressing room – and he’s also a top player.

“Albert is very quick, very skilful, a good dribbler, he sets up goals; he scores goals.

“He’s a real asset to this team – that’s out there on the pitch and in the dressing room, too.

“He has a very strong mentality also. You cannot underestimate this quality. Without a strong mentality, you cannot succeed in professional football.

“I thought his performance in the last game at Brighton was of a real high quality. He was man of the match. He really showed his class.

“I am sure that will be the level he looks to repeat every week – and I am confident he can do that.”
