& # 039; I'm not sure -: PL star suggests Leeds fans left him baffled – originally published on Sportslens.com
Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish has suggested that he be receives a lot of criticism and negligence from Leeds United fans despite the Whites not being Villa's direct rivals.
The 25-year-old Villa-Skipper is a fantastic player who not only impressed heavily in the Premier League but also showed his class while playing for his country too.
Known for his brilliant dribbling skills, skillful touch, and creativity, Grealish often pulls fouls from opposing players. In fact, he was the most fouled player in the league last season, and the same trend has continued this season.
Grealish has admitted that opposition fans hit him with the stick, which he easily drops, and he admits that this is likely to be the case to some extent. However, that is the nature of his game and he has made it clear that he is not a diver.
During his interview with Soccer AM, Grealish said that while he understands the loophole he's getting from local rivals like Birmingham City, West Brom and Wolves, he finds it really confusing when the criticism comes from the Leeds fan base .
“I don't mind holding back opposition fans. To be completely honest, it's usually just the same fans, " Grealish told Soccer AM .
“For some reason it's blues fans, West Brom, Wolves and then Leeds. I'm not sure why Leeds fans. I can understand those who are close to us and rivals. But you know, in the end it's all just a joke. “
Fantastic form and great price
Grealish has been in great shape this season, having scored five goals and five assists in the Premier League so far.
During the summer he was heavily linked to a move to Manchester United but the Red Devils were unwilling to pay £ 60-70 million for him
In his impressive form, his price has gone up , and recent reports indicate that Villa now estimates her star player at around £ 100 million .
Grealish has continued to blind Villa this season. and took his game to a new level. Since Manchester City is supposedly interested in his signature it remains to be seen how long Villa can keep him at the club.
