Club Statement: Jack Grealish incident

Jed Steer: We're relishing derby atmosphere The Verdict: Birmingham City 0-1 Aston Villa
Club Statement: Jack Grealish incident

Aston Villa Football Club is appalled by the disgraceful attack on Jack Grealish during today’s game.

A red line has been crossed by this cowardly on-field assault on a player, which is unprecedented in English football.

We trust the perpetrator will feel the full force of the law and the authorities investigate the circumstances surrounding today’s deplorable incident.

Local rivalries are part of the fabric of the game however, as we are sure our friends at Birmingham City would agree, to have a player’s personal safety placed under such jeopardy is a serious cause for concern for the entire football community.
