MATCH QUOTES

*Aston Villa statement* โ€œAston Villa football club is appalled by the disgraceful attack on Jack Grealish during todayโ€™s game. โ€œA 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 todayโ€™s deplorable incident. โ€œLocal rivalries are part of the fabric of the game. However, as we are sure our friends at Birmingham City would agree, to have a playerโ€™s personal safety placed under such jeopardy is a serious cause for concern for the entire football community.โ€ ---- *Villa captain Jack Grealish* โ€œI was just unaware at the time. I was walking into position and then just felt a whack around the side of the face. โ€œObviously thereโ€™s rivalry in football but I donโ€™t think thereโ€™s any place for that really. I just tried to get on with my job. To score the winner was unbelievable.โ€ ---- *Birmingham City statement* โ€œWe deplore the behaviour of the individual who committed this act and rest assured he will be banned from St Andrewโ€™s for life. โ€œThe club will also support any further punishment this individual may face in the eyes of the law.โ€ ---- *Villa boss Dean Smith* โ€œJack Grealish is a mature lad, and he responded well. There was only one way to answer that and that was to pop up with a winner like he did. โ€œIโ€™m really proud of the way he handled it. He only came off as he was knackered, cramping up. โ€œIt was a scrappy derby in difficult conditions but we were the better team in the second half and deserved to win.โ€
