Villa boss Sherwood wants Grealish to follow Cole example

Aston Villa boss Tim Sherwood wants Jack Grealish to use Joe Cole as a role-model.

A picture of Grealish inhaling nitrous oxide, taken a year ago, emerged last month and Sherwood wants Grealish to follow Cole's example and stay away from the limelight.

"Joe never got effected by that. I didn't read too much about Joe Cole being on the front pages," he said.

"He's just got to show (Jack) the lead hasn't he - 'just follow me, see what I did'.

"The world has changed because when Joe was coming through I was still playing, so I know what it's like to get twisted up by Joe Cole.

"You go in that canteen most days and you'll see Joe Cole talking to Jack Grealish.

"Joe Cole is a massive influence on him I think. They are very, very similar. If Jack can have a career like Joe Cole's had then he wouldn't have done too bad."
