Aston Villa midfielder Conor Hourihane has added further comments on the future of teammate Jack Grealish.
Having helped guide the Villans to promotion from the Championship last season, club captain Grealish has gone on to have arguably the best season of his playing career to date. Seven goals and six assists in the Premier League have contributed to Villa’s cause, although the Midlands-based club sit 19th in the league table ahead of a potential return after the coronavirus pandemic.
Reacting to a tweet sharing Hourihane’s comments, these Villa fans have given their opinions, with some claiming the midfielder should ‘focus on his football’ instead of commenting on his teammate’s future.
Conor Hourihane: “Jack’s obviously hugely talented, he’s our talisman and he’s had a fantastic season. He’s been linked with so many clubs, lots of top teams around Europe. It’s going to be a tough summer and a tough decision for Jack.” [sky sports] #avfc pic.twitter.com/HD9FEunUQd

When did Conor become Jack’s agent?

He just let’s us know what he’s thinking. That a player cares about his mate and captain is quite a nice thing, if you ask me.

Hourihane doubling down. Wish he showed as much conviction on the pitch. Talks a cracking game. #keanowannabe

He should go, we are a one man team. Get the money before he has a big injury in two years time

The club has ambition and is running things the right way now. We will need to keep Jack, strengthen the squad further and really start to build a sustainable system with a proper youth setup. We must keep Jack and strengthen with him in the squad.
