Jack Grealish Is Mature Beyond His Years For Speaking Sense On Mason Mount England Situation
Jack Grealish proved he's mature beyond his years for speaking complete sense about the "absolutely terrific" Mason Mount following England's victory over Republic of Ireland.
Grealish starred for England in only his second international start as he assisted Jadon Sancho during the 3-0 win at Wembley Stadium on Thursday.
When asked about the Chelsea star, he replied: "I love Mason, it's a bit annoying actually as he gets a bit of stick for it.
"I've always been close with Mase, I don't even think we are fighting for the same spot."

The 25-year-old added: "I want to play as much as possible; all I have to do is impress the manager as much as I can, since I've been here he's been brilliant with me, speaking to me on and off the pitch, telling me what he wants me to do, and that's what I've tried to do, so finger's crossed."

Gareth Southgate is also a believer that Grealiish and Mount can play in the same team.
"Yeah of course. There's a lot of other players in the squad as well, we have great competition for places," the England boss said when asked if Grealish and Mount can feature alongside each other.
He continued: "I was pleased with the way they moved the ball, Harry Winks did well, Bukayo Saka on the left looked a lot more comfortable than his first game.
"The two players in those roles, Jadon and Jack, they've got the freedom to go either side and create overloads, and at times they did that really well."
Grealish has been in superb form for Villa this season, weighing in with goals and assists as his boyhood club enjoyed a blistering start to the new Premier League campaign.
The Three Lions, meanwhile, resume their international schedule with Nations League matches against Belgium on Sunday then Iceland next Wednesday.
