Many Aston Villa fans on Twitter have hit back at pundit Jason Cundy after he said that Jack Grealish needs to leave his hometown side for a big club.
While speaking on The Sports Bar this morning, the former Chelsea and Tottenham player has said that he looks “a hell of a player”, before saying he “has to” leave Villa Park.
While discussing it with Andy Goldstein, both agreed that if a big side comes in for him that he needs to leave the club, irking many of the supporters who saw the tweet from talkSPORT with the discussion on.
There’s no doubt that the 24-year-old is some talent. So far, from the 12 games that he’s played this season, he has been able to score three times and assist four, per WhoScored. The stats website have also given him a 7.41/10 average from those games so far, making him have the second-highest rating in the entire squad.
Many fans from the West Midlands claimed that the claret and blue are in fact a big club, and that he doesn’t need to leave just yet.
Here are some of the replies below…
Why do local hero’s have to leave for bigger clubs? Its complete nonesense ..Villa have a 45k capacity atm & EPL footy, leave Grealish be in peace where he’s adored
Take Steve Bull & Andy Thompson, great examples of LOYALTY, fantastic ambassadors for Wolves..loved forever

He doesn’t have to leave… yet.
Opposition fans and the media, have spent 3 years telling us he’s overrated, now he’s proven you wrong, it’s where should he go?
We are his club, a big club, with ambitious owners. We have to prove to Jack he can achieve everything he wants here!

I’m a villa fan, I don’t understand being rattled by this kind of talk? Jack isn’t going to get his head turned to the point he doesn’t perform, he’ll work hard and do what he does best for as long as we have him, we should be happy that he’s wanted by “bigger” clubs

Needs to go to a big club and then names Man City.. I can’t actually believe Spurs is now classed as a top 6 club.. within what? Few seasons? Villa are huge in their own right and given a few seasons like spurs will be back to where they belong at the top.. with Jack!
