Karim El Ahmadi was the victim in Ramires horror tackle in the 92nd minute of the Aston Villa Vs Chelsea game. Ramires was rightly sent off for what Paul Lambert described as a ‘leg-breaker’ tackle. Lucky El Ahmadi only sustained a sore shin.
“If Karim comes in from another angle, he breaks his leg. It was shocking. He has got a sore one but thankfully he’s okay.
“He has a sore one on his shin. It certainly could have been worse.” – Paul Lambert
El Ahmadi has gotten back into the starting 11 and I will admit he has been playing some good football. I thought he played very well against Norwich and even better against Chelsea last weekend. His defensive ability has recently improved as well as his positioning and creativity in attack. In his last two games he has averaged a ‘Whoscored’ rating of 7.5. Lets hope that the experienced midfielder can keep up his form and maybe even add to his goal tally at the end of the season.
