Anwar El Ghazi reveals he’s trained like an animal, changed diet & cut his fat percentage
Ahead of the match at Villa Park, Dutch daily Telegraaf has spoken to Aston Villa’s Anwar El Ghazi.
El Ghazi has revealed how he’s significant changed his body and diet during the past three months:
My fat percentage was between ten and eleven percent, now between eight and nine.
I trained like an animal by myself, and I could pay even more attention to my food than normally during the season.
Then, you eat a lot of carbohydrates and your body asks for fast sugars. Now, I skip them. And because Ramadan and the lockdown coincided, that further accelerated my weight loss.

El Ghazi: 6 out of 10
In another enlightening comment, El Ghazi rated how he’s performed this season at Aston Villa:
Reasonably, because I think I should become more important.
In 25 games I’ve scored four times and delivered four assists. That is not very bad at a club that is so low (in the table).
I’d give myself a six.
