Aston Villa: Fans rage at Gareth Southgate over treatment of Jack Grealish - Aston Villa News

Plenty of Aston Villa fans have been having their say on the treatment of Jack Grealish by England manager Gareth Southgate.

The 25-year-old was recently snubbed by the Three Lions boss for their Nations League clash against Belgium, despite putting in a marvellous display at the expense of Wales last week.

How many goals have Aston Villa averaged per game?

Whether it was a coincidence or not, Southgate bypassed a question asked by journalists about the impact of Grealish to talk about Mason Mount, who happened to be included in that game while the Villa skipper was left out.

In response to this, former Villa striker Darren Bent told talkSPORT that he simply could not understand Southgate’s way of thinking, as Grealish is unable to continue his development with the national team while Mount is preferred.

Grealish has helped his club get off to a perfect start this season, scoring twice and providing three assists in their stunning 7-2 victory against Premier League champions Liverpool as Villa sit second in the table behind Everton.

No

Unsurprisingly, this further enraged the Villa faithful, who are slowly beginning to lose faith in Southgate with his decision-making. One supporter said that Grealish’s form is “streets ahead of Rashford”, who has just two goals and zero assists to his name this season, and accused the England manager of having his “favourites”.
