Speaking to Soccer AM’s YouTube channel, Jack Grealish has given 22-year-old Aston Villa striker Keinan Davis a rave review when talking about how strong he is.
The Villa captain was discussing his teammates FIFA 21 ratings and when he was asked who the strongest player at the club is, he was absolutely certain that Davis was the strongest player at Villa Park.
“It should one million per cent be Keinan Davis, but I don’t think it will be because his rating is terrible,” Grealish said.
“One hundred thousand million per cent it should be Keinan, he’s so strong, honestly, so, so strong. He’s one of the best hold-up players I’ve ever played with and that includes the likes of Benteke and stuff.”
“Honestly, he’s unbelievable. The only thing he needs to add to his game is his end product.”
It’s clear that the 22-year-old is very highly rated by his peers at Aston Villa.
Christian Benteke may be the butt of a lot of jokes these days due to his poor scoring record in recent seasons at Palace, but you mustn’t forget that when Grealish was playing with him he was one of the most deadly strikers in the country, so that comparison is very high praise.
As Grealish says though, he does need to work on his end product if he’s going to become a bona fide star in Dean Smith’s side, as he has to work towards usurping Ollie Watkins, who has been tipped to break Gabriel Agbonlahor’s Premier League scoring record.
Hopefully, Davis can just continue improving.
