Aston Villa goalkeeper Emiliano Martínez says his team-mate Jack Grealish is reminiscent of Lionel Messi himself.
” He’s the most talented player I’ve ever seen. He never loses the ball. “When I catch a pass and see Grealish on the move, I know we’ll have a shot on goal or a corner kick,” said Martínez.
“He plays two or three players. I only see Messi with his right foot! When he has the ball, you can not get it from him. “
Grealish has had a very good season with Villa. In a 21 game in the English Premier League he has scored six goals and given ten assists.
“I think he is the most talented English player. I’m surprised he didn ‘t play more national games, “Martínez said of Grealish, who has played five games for the English national team.
” Messi is Messi, the best of all time. But in practice, when Grealish has the ball, no one wants to tackle it. He can do anything. It’s like when I train with Messi for the national team, nobody wants to touch him. “
Martínez has played well with Villa and kept clean sheets in eleven of 21 the team’s game in the English Premier League. The Argentine came to Villa from Arsenal last autumn.
