“Hard work always pays off,” Trezeguet told beIN Sports. “It was a tough season because sometimes I play, sometimes I don’t but I always believed that my chance would come.

“In the end, I had my chance and I’m happy that I had a role in keeping Aston Villa in the Premier League.

“If we had lost or drew against Crystal Palace, we would’ve been relegated and against Arsenal, we played against a very strong team that had defeated both Liverpool and Manchester City in the same week,” the 25-year-old added.
