Having hung up his playing boots, former Aston Villa striker Gabby Agbonlahor is making quite a name for himself in the world of punditry and with Villa not far from his heart, we have become a regular go to topic of conversation for him.
Talksport’s Youtube channel recently tasked Gabby with naming his all-time Premier League XI, but the caveat was he could only name one player from each club – and for Aston Villa’s contribution to the squad he understandably selected his partner in crime, Ashley Young, over and above the likes of Jack Grealish, Paul McGrath or even Dwight Yorke.
“As a number 10 I have a player I played with a lot, an amazing, talented player, Ashley Young. It’s not Grealish. For what he’s done in the game, that’s my Villa man. He’s won the league with United, a Scudetto in Italy with Milan and he’s still playing now at 36.”
Admittedly it’s a bit of a strange decision to see him select Young in the No 10 role given where he actually played for us during his first spell at the club and fans will naturally have their own thoughts on who the ‘star’ player has been since the creation of the ‘Greed League’, but I do think Ash would be up there in at least most people’s top 5 or top 10 as an outside.
Vote in the poll, and if Ash isn’t your pick, tell us who is in the comments.
