Man Utd hero Neville slams Aston Villa captain Grealish

Manchester United hero Gary Neville has taken aim at Jack Grealish after last night's defeat.

United were comfortable 3-0 winners on Thursday.

And Neville remarked on Sky Sports: “Roy Keane talked about the lack of desire from Villa at half-time.

“This time, it's Jack Grealish - why does he stop short?

“He's a yard short. He doesn't get near to him, then waits. You think about the goalkeeper, I think he's unsighted.

“Villa are done. They've looked demoralised since half-time. You expected them to come out and have a right go, and they haven't done."

Neville added: “Graeme Souness says he holds onto the ball for too long, but the criticism I've got of him tonight is he's playing in the wrong areas.

“He's got to get himself around the 18 yard box. He's wide far too often, deep far too often. He's too far away from where you can really hurt teams."
