Aston Villa’s club captain Jack Grealish has prompted a fan reaction with his response to the news that the Premier League campaign will return on June 17.
Dean Smith’s side find themselves sat 19th in the Premier League table as things stand with their top-flight status very much hanging in the balance.
Having gained promotion via the Championship play-off final last season, the Midlands side will undoubtedly want to ensure their Premier League future, and Grealish’s form will play a massive part.
The former England U21 international has been in excellent form this season, contributing to his side’s cause with an impressive seven goals and six assists.
Such form has seen the midfielder gain interest from Manchester United and his future does remain up for debate, but he will be desperate to ensure his side beat off the threat of relegation first and foremost.
With football having been postponed since March, the Premier League have now confirmed that the 2019/2020 season will resume on June 17 and fans have reacted with excitement to Grealish’ tweet. Indeed, most are begging the midfielder to keep them in the top flight, unsurprising really given the stats mentioned above…
