Aston Villa midfielder Conor Hourihane admits Jack Grealish is now too good for their team. 

Despite having a tough season in the Premier League, Lions’ captain has not once given the fans moments to remember. Aston Villa are now in the relegation zone, but Grealish is one of the best players in the league. 

So far, the 24-year-old midfielder has scored 7 goals and provided 6 assists in 26 games of the PL, which keeps Villa hopes to stay in the PL. 

Recent reports suggest Manchester United are interested in signing Grealish. 

“He’s top, top class. In terms of pure ability and sheer skill and technique level he’s probably easily the best player I’ve played with to date,” Hourihane said during Southern Star’s Podcast.

“He’s just got that gift. He runs quicker with the ball, when he kind of faces someone up you’re in real trouble. He’s skipping by the best players in this league so easily.

“He’s developed over the three years I’ve been here – he’s taken his game to a new level over the last couple years – especially this year in the Premier League.”

“He’s taken the Premier League by storm really. You know, England team and getting that big move is only a matter of time because, if I’m being brutally honest, he’s too good for our team at Aston Villa.
