Marvelous Nakamba is unfazed by the racist abuse he suffered from a small group of Aston Villa fans on Saturday.

The Zimbabwe international was a victim of the abuse after the supporters sang about him following a great performance in 5-1 victory against Norwich.

The song which was meant to praise him contained racist connotations as the lyrics included calling the Warriors international a son of a ‘Rasta’, and his ‘master’ is John McGinn, a fellow midfielder at Villa.

Speaking to the Chronicle on Tuesday, Nakamba, who has created a huge fan-base since joining the EPL side in the pre-season, said he remains focused on his career.

“I’m not worried at all, all is well and God is in control,” said the midfielder.

“I just want to enjoy my game, keep on improving. I’m feeling the love from everyone at Aston Villa which makes my work even easier.”

The club, meanwhile, issued a statement on Monday condemning the abuse, saying they are disgusted and appalled by what their supporters did.
