‘Very strong’: West Ham star praises his Aston Villa counterpart

West Ham’s Said Benrahma has given a glowing verdict on the quality of Aston Villa star Jack Grealish.

Benrahma, 25, is enjoying his first season in the Premier League after a summer move to the London Stadium from Brentford.

He’s a skilful winger that is renowned as a bit of a trickster, and he’s shown glimpses of magic so far in the top-flight.

Grealish, also 25, has taken his game up another level this year, and has been one of the standout wingers this season.

He’s got the capability to drift inside to more central positions, but has found massive success operating from the left-winger role.

His stats of seven goals and 12 assists in 23 games across all competitions is hugely impressive

Benrahma has hailed the Villa ace as one of the best:

“I’d say Grealish this year. Grealish, I’d say, or Mo Salah,” Benrahma said when talking about his toughest opponent.

“I think that, this season, Grealish is a player who I thought was good and very strong.”

TBR’s View:

Grealish is now getting the kind of universal praise that his performances deserve.

The English sensation is a talisman at club level at Villa Park, something that many England fans hope is equally the case this summer with the Three Lions at the European Championships.

He’s deceptively strong when he’s dribbles, as it’s hard to knock him off balance due to his low centre of gravity, as well as his much talked leg muscles.
