Nottingham Forest's Jamie Paterson comments on Aston Villa's Jack Grealish

Aston Villa 2

Nottingham Forest star defends Aston Villa teenager.

Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish has found himself the subject of tabloid stories again after photos were published of him on holiday in Tenerife.

Pictures published in The Mirror, among other outlets, purports to show a drunken Grealish passed out in the street, taken by another holidaymaker.

TalkSport later reported Aston Villa are to hold talks with the breakout star, reminding him of his responsibilities to himself and the club.

There are those who feel however it's a bit of a non-story, with Nottingham Forest midfielder Jamie Paterson one of them.

He took to his Twitter account to weigh in and defend the Villa teenager.

Grealish is just 19-years-old, and his behaviour is relatively typical of a lads holiday abroad for kids his age. 

He is no typical teenager though as much as he may wish on some levels to be; with great talent becomes great responsibility.

He is learning a hard lesson about social media and the challenges of being thrust into the spotlight; which fortunately for the likes of many a retired footballer, were not around in years gone by.
