Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish is rather annoyed with him and Mason Mount comparisons.
He has stated that he’s always been close to Mount and there is no such rivalry.
“I love Mason. It’s a bit annoying actually because he probably gets a bit of stick at times from it,” he said.
“I’ve always been close with Mason. I think he’s a terrific player, and I don’t think we’re even fighting for the same spot, to be honest.
“If anything, he’s underrated, deserves all the credit he gets, and people who know about football will understand just how good he is.”
Grealish himself added: “I want to play as much as possible; all I have to do is impress the manager as much as I can, since I’ve been here he’s been brilliant with me, speaking to me on and off the pitch, telling me what he wants me to do, and that’s what I’ve tried to do, so fingers crossed.”
