John Terry raves about Aston Villa star John McGinn, wishes he was English

John McGinn scored the winner at Wembley.

Aston Villa coach John Terry has admitted he wishes John McGinn was English rather than Scottish, The Scottish Sun reports.

The 14-cap Scotland international scored Aston Villa’s second goal in the play-off final. With the game ending 2-1, this proved to be the difference.

 

It was the ex-Hibernian midfielder’s ninth goal in a fruitful first season in England. He also registered 12 assists and was one of the standout performers for the Villans this season.

As reported by The Scottish Sun, the former England captain said: “Do I wish John was English? Yes, and I wish he was playing at Wembley more. That would be good. John is superb. Jack Grealish gets all the headlines, but it’s the work John does.
