Aston Villa fans react on Twitter to Jack Grealish's latest comments

Steve Bruce the head coach

Aston Villa fans believe Jack Grealish has exposed Steve Bruce through his comments about Anwar El-Ghazi with the Telegraph.

El-Ghazi only joined Villa this summer, but he has quickly been thrown into the starting line-up.

 

And Grealish has revealed that only recently El-Ghazi has been asking about what Villa's opponents later this evening, Bristol City, play like. 

He said: "I was speaking to El Ghazi this morning and he was asking me about Bristol City. I told him they play good football and he just puffed his cheeks out – I don’t think he can believe how hard the league is. It’s relentless, but we have to be ready.”

Villa fans believe that Grealish’s comments are either a dig at Bruce, or they show that the claret and blues boss hasn’t prepared his players enough.

Bruce is under serious pressure at Villa, as their form has been poor this season.

The Midlands side have won just once in their last eight matches.

Villa were beaten 2-1 by Sheffield Wednesday in their last outing, to heap further pressure on Bruce.

The Villans really need to beat Bristol City this evening, otherwise the calls for Bruce to lose his job will only become louder.
