- Rio Ferdinand has hailed Aston Villa winger Jack Grealish for his game
- The Manchester United legend stated that Grealish is the best EPL player for now
- Jack Grealish and his teammates at Aston Villa are currently occupying 9th on EPL table
Aston Villa winger Jack Grealish has been named as the best player in the Premier League by Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand who saluted him for his incredible styles of football.
Last season in the Premier League, Aston Villa struggled in the English topflight as Jack Grealish and his teammates escaped relegation to the Championship.
Grealish has a remarkable 18 goal involvements in 21 games this term, with many believing he is deserving of a starting place for England in this summer’s delayed Euro 2020.
While speaking as a pundit according to the report on Mirror, Rio Ferdinand explained that the 25-year-old is the best player so far in the Premier League.
“There’s a great argument for Maddison, there’s a great argument for other players. Grealish is the best player in the league right now, on form. He’s been the best player this season.”
Meanwhile, Aston Villa are currently occupying ninth position on the Premier League table with 35 points after 21 games played so far this term.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish was handed a nine-month driving ban for breaking UK traffic rules on two separate occasions this year.
The England player was first involved in traffic rule breach in March before another one occurred in October.
The 25-year-old has been banned from driving for the next nine months and was also handed a heavy fine to the tune of £82,000 after pleading guilty to two offences.
Grealish appeared at the Magistrates Court in Birmingham on Tuesday morning, December 15, just before the hearing as he had earlier admitted to two counts of careless driving.
It was gathered that on March 29, the player rammed his £90,000 Range Rover into three parked vehicles in Solihull, as shown in footage during the court session.
