‘He’s like a Duracell battery says Luton coach on Marvelous Nakamba
English Championship club Luton Town FC’s head coach Rob Edwards has likened Warriors star Marvelous Nakamba with a reachable and ‘long lasting’ Duracell battery after the midfielder played the entire match against Coventry City on Saturday.
Praising the central midfielder, Edwards’ remarks comes after the 28-year-old midfielder who made his first start for Luton this past weekend, played his first full 90 minutes for the first time since December 2021.
“I thought he was marvellous! I did, I thought he was great. I wasn’t sure how long he was going to play, but he’s like a Duracell battery, he just kept going and going and going and going.
“I thought he was outstanding, covers the pitch so well, smells the danger and then really calm with the ball, I’m delighted with him,” said Edwards.
Nakamba who told Luton’s media after the game that he is “looking forward to giving everything for the team” hopes to put his career back on track during his six months loan spell after heavily falling down pecking order at Villa.
The Zimbabwean international went on to reveal that he is “very delighted to be at Luton” and also thanked the fans, team-mates and the technical staff for welcoming him at Kenilworth Road.
Furthermore, he spoke about his first full 90 minutes in over a year.
“It was my first 90 minutes but I’ve been doing some extra training sessions, the technical staff and the coaches have helped me a lot.
“I’ve been training by myself for some extra training. Physically for me it is not a problem and when I play, I always give everything,’ he said.
