No he is not one of best in the World when he plays. The reason he didn’t play is because we had two better players occupying the positions. Yeah for first season he was incredible and would has deserved that plaudit, in his second less so but you would get away with it, last season he was poor...
Why do people keep saying he is one of the best CBs in the World? You have to play to earn those plaudits and he couldn’t get into the starting line up last year. Also money clearly does matter so throwing away probably £25 million to keep a player the manager doesn’t want is absolutely stupid.
He was an accident waiting to happen. Biggest game of his career he headbutt someone, puts in about 6 tackles worthy of a yellow, continually asks the ref to book everyone and falls about. No thank you. I shit myself enough when I see Aurier on the team sheet.
Going to go against the grain here and say that I think Maddison is better than Grealish. They play slightly different positions but from what I have seen Maddison has the ability to make things happen on a more regular basis
