Grealish says this player is fastest at club, Aston Villa fans will be shocked
By Aramide Oladipo
Aston Villa youngster Jack Grealish has revealed that Gabby Agbonlahor is the quickest player at the club.
This will come as a shock to Villa fans – the former Villa captain was one of the quickest around when he first burst on the scene a decade ago but he has struggled to keep his weight down in recent years.
It might even come as a shock to Agbonlahor himself – earlier in the season he told the official website that he felt that midfielder Andre Green was the quickest player.
Agbonlahor only managed to score a single goal throughout the season but it was one to savour as he scored the winner in the 1-0 victory in the Second City derby against Birmingham City at Villa Park.
Grealish was talking to the club’s official website about his fellow teammates and when asked who was the quickest, he only had one player in mind.

“I’d have to say Gabby. He’s been known for his pace over the years and he’s definitely still got that burst of pace.” he replied.
Grealish was the hero on the final day of the season for Aston Villa as his late goal helped Aston Villa secure an unlikely 1-1 draw against promoted side Brighton.
