Aston Villa midfielder Jacob Ramsey has named Jack Grealish as the best dribbler in Premier League history, adding that the Villans captain is “getting better and better” each season.
Grealish has been sensational for Villa over the years, and Dean Smith’s decision to make him skipper in early 2019 proved a masterstroke which changed the club’s fortunes.
Not only did the 25-year-old help drag the Villans into the playoffs and back into the Premier League in 2018-19, but he played a huge role in keeping them there.
This season, he helped Villa get their league campaign off to a flying start, and with just eight games left to play, a top-half finish is realistic.
Ramsey and Villa teammate Ezri Konsa were interviewed by the Premier League Uncut team for their latest YouTube episode.
They were asked who they thought was the best dribbler in PL history, and while Konsa opted for Cristiano Ronaldo, Ramsey went for Grealish.
“I’ve seen him in training every day and in the games, and watching his clips as well, he’s been getting better and better since I’ve been in the first team from a couple of years ago,” he said.
“Every season he’s been getting better and better.”
Grealish is a player of the highest calibre who has been sensational for Villa over the years and has assured himself of a place in claret and blue folklore.
Last season, he helped Villa survive in the Premier League, and this year he’s helped the team go up a level.
With both team and player improving, could next season bring about a top six finish, perhaps European qualification?
