PREMIER - Gerrard: ''Jack very much deserves a warm welcome''
Jack Grealish has earned the right to a warm welcome when he returns to Villa Park for the first time as a Manchester City player this week, according to Aston Villa manager Steven Gerrard.
Grealish joined his boyhood club for a Premier League record £100 million ($133 million) in August after making over 200 appearances for the club since his debut at the age of 18.
The England international has been out of action for the past few weeks, but he returned to training on Monday and might face his former club.
"Jack very much deserves a warm welcome and I have no doubt he'll get that," said Gerrard, who has made a perfect start to his Premier League coaching career with two wins from two games.
"This is his club and it will be when his career is over, because he was here as a little boy and he has come through the academy.
"The club have benefited a lot from what Jack has given and we very much wish him well moving forward for the remainder of his career. Obviously not for 90 minutes tomorrow," he added before Wednesday's fixture.
