Plenty of Aston Villa fans have reacted to claims made by Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson that Jack Grealish ‘doesn’t trust’ his teammates.
The Villa captain has had a superb season at the club, contributing with seven goals and six assists during his 26 Premier League games.
With football at a current standstill, Grealish’s mind will no doubt be on helping the Claret and Blue fight off relegation, sitting 19th in the league table as things stand.
The 24-year-old began his career with Villa after successfully developing through the club’s academy sides. Making his debut against Manchester City in 2014, Grealish has gone on to become a key member of the Villa side, making 177 first team appearances for the club.
Former Villa man Merson was speaking along with the likes of Graeme Souness as part of Sky Sports’ The Football Show, and he claimed that the Villa midfielder did not trust his teammates.
Reacting via Twitter account @VillaTilliDie, fans have been issuing a varied response on Merson’s opinion:

Agreed but with a season in English football behind them, they will improve again, just need to survive and sort defence midfielder position out and centre halves,Ming’s has to many mistakes in him, could be from being overworked, but explains why Villa were the only team bidding

really do not think he holds on to the ball too long. In fact I think they are talking complete nonsense

He creates space but doesn’t use the players who take that space
