Birmingham Live reporter Ashley Preece gave his thoughts to Jack Grealish’s recent comments on his Aston Villa exit on Friday.
And a number of Villa supporters have reacted to Preece’s story on social media.
Should Grealish get a good reception at Villa Park?
Yes, of course!
No, not now!
However, prior to the game, ITV shared an interview with the 25-year-old where he reacted to his £100m release clause in his Villa contract.
Preece gave his thoughts to the interview and referenced Leeds United’s Kalvin Phillips, England’s Player of the Year, when Grealish admitted that he needed to be playing Champions League football to enhance his international career.
Villa fans react
He posted a link to his story on Twitter on Friday morning, and although Grealish himself has disputed the piece, these Villa fans were all in agreement, with one describing the report as ‘fantastic’.
“Ashley Preece, take a bow son. Brilliant article! It’s 100% spot on. The reason why I and others have lost any respect and love we had for a player we all once idolised. ”
“This is so good to read, Grealish utterly killing his remaining Villa respect he had left. The bloke is either genuinely stupid or he really doesn’t care.”
“this is a fantastic article and really outlines how villa fans feel about the move.”
“Spot on here. Fame and adulation clearly going straight to the head. We move.”
“This is bang on. He’s unrecognisable already.”
“Absolutely bang on, anyone who plans on not giving Grealish the hardest night of his life in November, read this.”
