One-time Aston Villa boo-boy Joleon Lescott believes Jack Grealish must compete at the top level.

Joleon Lescott  said “I definitely knew he was going to be a star for Aston Villa, and the potential he had, not even the potential but the ability he had at that age was visible. I did question whether he was going to allow distractions to affect the route he takes to get to where he should be, and I think he’s proved with his football and level of professionalism that he can compete with anyone in the league. I think he’s created the most chances of anyone aside from Kevin De Bruyne, which is ridiculous for a team that is in the bottom three. If Jack does leave, which many seem to believe that he will at some point, whether it’s this season I don’t know but, in order to be a top player, he needs to compete at the top level and, for me, that’s in the Champions League. I know he can perform at those clubs against those kinds of players, and I think everyone can see the ability he has but, once you actually work with him you’ll see how good he is, how strong he is and how big he is. When I was there he was young, but I’ve seen him recently and he’s a man now, he’s developed his body and put the work in off the field to ensure that he’s robust. He doesn’t miss games for silly injuries, but obviously there are impact injuries coming from getting fouled so much and he puts his body through a lot but, he’s built up robustness which is a credit to him.”

The defender-turned-pundit gave an insight into his former teammate, explaining how he definitely knew he was going to be a star for Aston Villa.
