Aston Villa star Jack Grealish has been slammed by pundit Graeme Souness
It recently came to light that Grealish is the most fouled player in the Premier League, indicating his importance to Villa.
But Souness believes that is actually a negative statistic as it shows Grealish doesn’t read the game well enough.
Souness said on Sky Sports: “When I was playing, I would not want to be the most fouled player in the Premier League.
“That means I’m holding on to the ball for far too long. It means I’m not seeing the picture early enough.

“Taking an extra touch when I don’t need to, it means you’re not seeing the picture quick enough.
“There’s no doubt about it, he’s ability, he’s silky on the eye, but I’m yet to be convinced by him.
“When I was being coached at Liverpool, I was told that I made the striker’s mind up.
“With my body movement, the way I get the ball out of my feet, I’m making them run before I even kick the ball.
“I just think anyone who gets tackled that much and draws that many fouls is not seeing the picture quick enough.
“Would I have liked to play against him? I would’ve loved to play against him, get physical with him.
“I wouldn’t like to play against Paul Scholes, he’s too quick. Xavi, Iniesta, popping it off one or two touches.”
